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.
