The BJP will be contesting next month's Assembly elections in Meghalaya in alliance with P A Sangma's National People's Party. The party declared its candidates for nine seats on Saturday.
The party is likely to field another half dozen candidates leaving other seats for the NPP under the alliance.
"Candidates for nine seats were finalised today, few more candidates will be announced soon. The party will contest the election in alliance with the NPP," Kiren Rijiju, party in-charge for Megalaya, said after the meeting of the CEC.
The BJP also declared candidates for 41 out of the 60 constituencies in Tripura, which also goes to polls next month. The party may, source said, field a few more candidates but was unlikely to contest all the assembly seats in the state.
