The BJP in Goa has shortlisted names for 37 out of the 40 seats, which go to polls on February 14, Union Minister of State for Tourism Shripad Naik said on Thursday.

“We have shortlisted names for recommendation to the party’s parliamentary board for 37 seats. Some seats will be finalised soon after more discussion,” Naik told reporters after consecutive meetings of the BJP’s state election committee and the party’s core committee.

The final list of candidates, Naik said, would be declared by the BJP parliamentary board in Delhi soon.
