Shaina NC to contest from Bandra

September 21, 2004 00:45 IST

The Bharatiya Janata Party has fielded fashion designer and former Mumbai sheriff Nana Chudasama's daughter Shaina N C from the prestigious Bandra assembly seat, not really a favourite with the BJP-Shiv Sena combine owing to the large number of Christian and Muslim constituents.

Shaina Chudasama Munot, popularly known as Shaina N C, had joined the BJP on September 14 along with 250 young professionals from various fields. She was entrusted with the operations of the newly formed health and culture cell of the BJP's city unit.

Following is the third list of seven candidates announced by BJP for the October 13 assembly elections in Maharashtra:
     1. Shaina N C                     Bandra
     2. Harishchandra Patil            Kalyan
     3. Kumar Ailani                   Ulhasnagar
     4. Rajaram Salvi                  Murbad
     5. Harishchandra Bhoye            Jawhar
     6. Chandrashekhar Kadam           Rahuri
     7. Pradeep Salunkhe               Karad North

BJP had announced names of 83 candidates in its first list on September 16, and names of 15 candidates in the second list on Sunday. The party was yet to announce its candidates for eight seats.

It is contesting 114 seats, its ally Shiv Sena 167 seats while the Shetkari Sangathana has been allotted seven of the total 288 seats.
