The list was announced after a meeting of the BJP Central Election Committee at the party headquarters, chaired by party President Amit Shah.

Yeddyurappa is the chief ministerial candidate for the BJP as the party is targeting to win 150 out of the total 224 assembly seats in the Karnataka elections.

The AICC screening committee headed by Madhusudan Mistry and comprising general secretary KC Venugopal, chief minister Siddaramaiah and PCC Karnataka president Parameshwara met late in the evening to fast-track the selections process of candidates.

Mumbai: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday released a list of 72 candidates for Karnataka assembly contest.

"Congress sources said the option of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah contesting from two seats â€" Badami and Chamundeshwari was still open. The last date for filing the nominations is April 24, while April 27 is the last date of withdrawal of candidature.
