"The party has considered the aspirations of our dedicated workers in Telangana region. Adequate representation has been given to representatives of all communities," Union Minister JP Nadda said after the CEC meet.

Apart from Telangana, the BJP also released its first list of 77 candidates for assembly elections in Chhattisgarh. The party has fielded Chief Minister Raman Singh from his traditional Rajnandgaon seat and dropped 14 incumbent MLAs in its bid to capture power in the state for a fourth straight term.

Elections in Chhattisgarh are scheduled in two phases on November 12 and November 20, while the election in Mizoram and Telangana are scheduled on November 28 and December 7. The counting of votes would take place on December 11.
