The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will give tickets to only one person from the family of any party leader.

As per reports, the BJP said that not more than one person from the same family shall be named as a candidate in the upcoming Assembly elections.

According to reports, the BJP will not field any of its sitting MPs in the assembly elections. However, it could field its former MPs.

In its first list released for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections on Saturday, the BJP had named several former MPs as candidates.

Sources said that many BJP MPs want assembly tickets for their children, but a decision in this regard will be taken on a case-to-case basis depending on the winning ability of the individual concerned, and the electoral equation of the particular seat.
