Rajya Sabha polls Rajiv Shukla not Naranbhai Rathwa to file nomination from Gujarat

Senior Congress leader Rajiv Shukla will now file nomination papers from Gujarat for the upcoming Rajya Sabha polls due to be held on March 23. He claimed that senior BJP leaders had "brought in lawyers" to put pressure on the returning officer not to accept his nomination.

G.C. Chandrashekar is the third candidate of the Congress. While talking to reporters, he said, "I oppose corruption in the state and am pushing for a corruption-free Karnataka". Two years after seven members of the JD (S) cross-voted, party supremo H D Devegowda has made a decision to initiate legal action against them. Both Vishnoi and Sonkar said that they were asked by party leadership to contest. Patel had won in a hard-fought battle. "Implying thereby that the entire process of getting seven no dues certificates from seven different departments in the Lok Sabha Secretariat was completed in less than 40-50 minutes", Angadi's letter to Mahajan stated.

Sources said the Speakers office has ordered an enquiry into the matter.

He also alleged that there is "no proper mention" of criminal cases in Mr Rathwa's affidavit. The JD (S), fully aware of its rebel MLAs' plan to join the Congress ahead of Karnataka assembly Election 2018, has now chose to bring in a legal checkmate. Despite a whip issued by the JD (S) asking its MLAs to vote for B M Farooq, its Rajya Sabha candidate in 2016, the MLAs had voted in support of the Congress' KC Ramamurthy. "The RO over-ruled the BJPs objections to approve Rathwas candidature", said Congress spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil.

In the affidavit given by BJP leader V Muraleedharan along with his nomination paper for the Rajya Sabha election, there are some serious mistakes, according to reports.

These include central ministers Parsottam Rupala and Mansukh Mandaviya as well as Kiritsinh Rana from BJP, Naran Rathwa and Amee Yajnik from Congress, Rajni Patel as dummy candidate as well as Paresh Mulani and Congress leader PK Valera as independents.

Two national general secretaries - Maharashtra in-charge Saroj Pandey and Haryana in-charge Anil Jain, are also on the list of candidates. One of its leaders P K Valera has filed his nomination as an independent candidate with the support of some Congress MLAs.

The Sena has 63 MLAs, but the Congress does not expect to receive its surplus votes despite the smaller partner's anger at the BJP. Both the parties are in a position to send two candidates each to the Rajya Sabha, as the minimum number of votes required per candidate is 37.
