BJP releases list of 18 RS nominees

In the 245-member Upper House of Parliament Uttar Pradesh has 31 seats being the most populous state of the country

The last Congress leader from Bihar in the Rajya Sabha was R.K. Dhawan in 2002.

There is a likelihood of 28 votes of the BJP which would be left after the division of votes amongst its eight candidates, being transferred to Agarwal. The last date to withdraw is March 15. The party opted for a tribal candidate in Jharkhand to reach out to the Scheduled tribes.

However, the move to field four candidates can create trouble for Congress candidates if voting takes place.

After scrutiny of papers on Tuesday, all the six candidates are likely to be declared elected unopposed.

BJP has named Ashok Bajpai, Vijay Pal Singh Tomar, Sakal Deep Rajbhar, Kanta Kardam, Anil Jain, Harnath Singh Yadav and GVL Narasimha Rao as their Rajya Sabha candidates from Uttar Pradesh.

After re-nominating Union ministers Arun Jaitley, Ravishankar Prasad, Prakash Javadekar, JP Nadda and Dharmendra Pradhan last week, BJP's fresh list includes a good mix of new faces and party veterans.

Rajya Sabha adjourned till 2 pm
After both the houses were adjourned early on the day, Congress hit back at BJP. The House was first adjourned until 2 pm, and later for the day.

In UP there are 10 seats up for grabs. While SP has nominated Bachchan, the BSP has nominated Bhimrao Ambedkar to the post.

The other candidates are former Rajya Sabha MP Dhiraj Prasad Sahu from Jharkhand, former state minister Rajmani Patel from Madhya Pradesh and former MP Porika Balram Naik from Telangana.

Rane will contest from Maharashtra, Chandrasekhar from Karnataka, Baluni from Uttarakhand, Pande from Chhattisgarh.

Lt. Gen (Retd.) DP Vats has been nominated from Haryana.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, state BJP chief Nand Kumar Singh Chauhan, the party's organisation General Secretary Suhas Bhagat, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Narottam Mishra and other leaders were present.

Congress spokesman Shaktisinh Gohil, however, said Shukla was not going to file nomination and added that the party's candidates are Rathwa and Yagnik. Looking at the selection of the candidates and the in-fighting that has surfaced afterwards, it is clear that there is a feeling of discontent among Congress members from their central leadership.
