Saroj Pandey will surely be elected to Rajya Sabha: CM

These amounted to disqualification from contesting election for the post of MP (Rajya Sabha) as per the provisions of the Representation of People's Act, 1951, Dalal said.

Earlier, there were reports that Shukla would replace Naranbhai Rathwa.

Farook of the JD (S) has already filed his nomination papers.

Reports also suggested that the party had chose to replace Rathwa with Shukla at the instructions of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.

The nomination of the lone independent candidate for the Rajya Sabha polls in Uttar Pradesh was today rejected during scrutiny, but a contest will still take place if three of the 13 candidates left in the fray do not withdraw their papers on March 15.

Ahead of the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections, the BJP has added an element of unpredictability to the otherwise tiresome and predictable polls by fielding a fourth candidate from the state.

Manchester United's Michael Carrick confirms retirement at end of season
As such, he's likely to take on a coaching role from next season - discussions are ongoing but "it's been kind of sorted out". Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has announced that he will retire at the end of the season.

Mumbai: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will withdraw its fourth candidate for the Rajya Sabha (RS) elections scheduled on March 23 for seats from Maharashtra.

On Tuesday the forms of the candidates were scrutinised and accepted by the election returning officer. He was elected to the Rajya Sabha in June 2009 and was against re-elected in 2010.

Hanumanthaiah is a Dalit leader and former chairman of the Kannada Development Authority, while Chandrashekhar is from the dominant Vokkaliga community. The party opted for Syed Naseer Hussain as its third candidate.

BJP strategists are hoping to win over some opposition legislators from the SP, BSP and the Congress, so that they can vote in their favor. However, Congress leaders rubbished it as a rumour and reiterated that the tribal leader would arrive to file his nomination. On a query that another "Shakti Kendra" has been developed in the state, the State President said "we want that such "Shakti Kendras" should keep up developing from all parts of the state and such leaders through their work execution will bring good name to Chhattisgarh".

Ketkar has been nominated from Maharashtra and Porika Balram Naik from Telangana. Elections to the five Rajya Sabha seats has been necessitated as the terms of Kunal Ghosh, Bibek Gupta and Nadimul Haque of the Trinamool Congress and Tapan Sen of Communist Party of India-Marxist will end on April 2.

The BJP's complaint ahead of the biennial polls to the Upper House on March 23 marks yet another instance of its all out attack on the opposition party over a Rajya Sabha election as it had earlier targeted its senior leader Ahmed Patel during polls a year ago.
