The BJP Central Election Committee met on Sunday to finalise the partys candidates for the Karnataka assembly polls scheduled for May 10.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Amit Shah, BJP president J P Nadda and other members of the CEC were joined by senior party leaders, including Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, as they deliberated on the names of probable candidates.
Senior party leaders have been holding talks for a couple of days to winnow down the list of probables before the CEC takes a final call.
The BJP, which aims to come back to power again in the southern state, has set a target of winning at least 150 of the 224 seats.
The partys main rival is the Congress which has also expressed confidence about coming back to power in the state.
