The BJP unveiled two candidates for the 2018 elections in its seventh list. In Amravati, Maharashtra, and Chitradurga, Karnataka, the saffron party fielded Navneet Rana and Govind Karjol, respectively, for seats designated for Scheduled Caste candidates. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Amravati MP Navneet Rana emerged victorious as an independent candidate.
