The PM had four proposers from diverse backgrounds. Here are their details.

Pandit Ganeshwar Shastri, a member of the Brahmin community who determined the auspicious time for the consecration of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

  • Baijnath Patel, an RSS volunteer from the OBC community.
  • Lalchand Kushwaha also hails from the OBC community.

PM Modi’s proposers in the last Lok Sabha elections were an agricultural scientist, a former principal of BHU’s Mahila Mahavidyalaya, and an RSS worker.

According to Election Commission rules, every candidate must have a proposer. This person must be a registered elector in the Assembly or parliamentary constituency in which the candidate is running.

Both the proposer and the candidate must sign the nomination papers.

An Independent or candidate of an unrecognized party needs 10 proposers, while a candidate of a recognised state or national party needs one.
