RJD announces candidates for Rajya Sabha election

Besides Union Minister of State Parshottam Rupala and Mansukh Mandavia, the ruling BJP has fielded senior leader Kiritsinh Rana, stating there could be cross-voting due to Valera's nomination as a third candidate backed by the Congress.

The Rajya Sabha poll is scheduled to take place on Mar.23.

The other BJP candidates who filed their nominations were Samajwadi Party turncoat Ashok Bajpai, GVL Narasimha Rao, Harnath Singh Yadav, Vijay Pal Singh Tomar, Sakal Deep Rajbhar, Kanta Kardam and Anil Jain.

Elections to the six Rajya Sabha seats from Maharashtra will be held on March 23. "With Patangrao Kadam's recent demise, Congress's strength has been reduced from 42 to 41and its two MLAs Nitesh Rane and Kalidas Kolmbkar are considered to be Rane loyalists so it is likely they might not vote in favour of the Congress".

While Singhvi will represent the party from West Bengal, Niranbhai Rathwa and Amee Yajnik have been selected over many other seniors from Gujarat.

Dolphins To Add WRs Amendola, Wilson; Cut LB Timmons
With the Allen Robinson news breaking late last night, the Bears are clearly ready to start making some news throughout the day. Since joining the Dolphins, Aikens has played at cornerback, safety and been a significant contributor on special teams.

Finance Minister Jaitley, a sitting member of the Upper House from Gujarat, was among the 11 BJP nominees who filed their papers from Uttar Pradesh.

The party might announce the name by Sunday, since the last date for submission of nomination is Monday. But will the Congress manage to fight anti-incumbency in the one of the few states it governs in India following the Modi wave?

Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said presence of the two party members in Rajya Sabha will help in further development of state.

There will be 59 vacancies in the Rajya Sabha in April, including 17 from the BJP and 12 from the Congress party. The three candidates are L Hanumanthaiah, Naseer Hussain and G.C Chandrashekar - a Dalit, A Muslim, and a Vokkaligga (a dominant OBC community), respectively.

The TMC has already its four candidats and its leader Mamta Banerjee has openly said her party would support Singhvi in the Rajya Sabha polls. Given the strength of the LDF in the Assembly, Kumar's victory is certain. Thirty eight first preference votes of the MLAs are required to win a seat.
