BJP's Central Election Committee in its crucial meeting attended among others by Prime Minister Narendra Modi tonight 'considered' names of party candidates for Punjab and Goa Assembly Elections. But the saffron party is likely to announce the candidates' names only tomorrow, sources said. "We met and considered the names but we need to carry out some more consultation," a party leader who is in the know of things told UNI. Among others, party chief Amit Shah, Union ministers Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley, M Venkaiah Naidu and senior ministers Ananth Kumar, Shahnawaz Hussain and party leader Ram Lal also attended the meeting. As part of the agreement with Akali Dal, BJP will field candidates in 23 seats for 117-member Punjabassembly that goes to the polls in single-phase on February 4. Elections to the 40-member Goa assembly will be also held on February 4. The BJP is likely to contest all 40 seats or could even leave a few to smaller allies in the state. The BJP's central election panel is again likely to meet on January 15 or 16 to name candidates for crucial UP polls. Besides UP, Punjab and Goa, assembly elections will be held also in Uttarakhand and Manipur. UNI DEVN SHS 2328
