According to the list released by the party’s central headquarters, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will contest from Varanasi, while Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will contest from Lucknow. Other notable candidates include Lallu Singh from Ayodhya and Hema Malini from Mathura. The BJP has shown confidence in familiar faces in Uttar Pradesh.

Out of Uttar Pradesh’s 51 Lok Sabha seats, only four constituencies have seen the introduction of new names. Among them, Saket Mishra will contest from Shravasti, Ritesh Pandey from Ambedkar Nagar (who joined BJP from BSP), Kripashankar Singh from Jaunpur, and Om Prakash from Nagina.
