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.
