Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Ticket seekers from Khandwa parliamentary constituency, three state assembly constituencies of Jobat, Prathvipur and Raigaon made a beeline at BJP office on Saturday to claim their candidature from respective constituencies.
On Friday, a meeting of bypoll coordination committee was held and after that, aspirants began reaching the party office.
As per bypoll schedule, candidates can file their nomination from October 1-8, 2021. Till Saturday evening, none of the candidates from Congress and BJP had filed their nominations.
Two possible candidates from Prathvipur Roashni Yadav and MLA Anita Nakya also reached BJP office to stake their claim. Yadav told mediapersons that party will take the decision, which she will follow.
