Even as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is weighing its electoral options in Seemandhra region post bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, its local unit has proposed that the party go solo in the upcoming Lok Sabha and Assembly elections.

The Seemandhra BJP has appealed to the party's Central Committee to contest 175 Assembly seats and 25 Lok Sabha seats in the residuary state without tie-up with any political party.

This was decided here in a meeting of presidents and general secretaries of 13 districts of Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra region.

K Hari Babu, the national executive member of BJP, told reporters they are all prepared to contest all seats.

"But the final decision will be taken by the Committee," he added.
