"We are confident that the public will bless us again. Today an important meeting of the Central Election Committee was held on Rajasthan," he said.

The screening committee has held discussions on the names of the candidates on all seats.

The Congress is looking to buck the revolving door trend in Rajasthan and retain power. In Madhya Pradesh, it is seeking to wrest back power from the BJP.

While polling for the Madhya Pradesh assembly would be held on November 17 and Rajasthan polls would take place on November 25, votes would be counted on December 3.
