Earlier, there was talk that Yogi would contest from Mathura or Ayodhya. The BJP has announced the names of 57 candidates for the first phase and 48 candidates for the second phase in today’s list.
The BJP has also given tickets to Kalyan Singh’s grandson Sandeep Singh and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh’s son Pankaj Singh.
