Arun Jaitley files nomination for Rajya Sabha polls from Uttar Pradesh

Amitabh Bachchan with his wife Jaya Bachchan

Bajpai, a Brahmin leader from Hardoi, joined the BJP a year ago.

Besides Chaturvedi, senior leaders such as Suresh Pachauri, former Mahila Congress chief Shobha Oza and State Congress president Arun Yadav were in contention for the seat in MP. The list contains 18 names with 7 from Uttar Pradesh.

While the BJP is poised to win its all four seats, the Congress is expected to get one seat, based on the strength of its members in the state Assembly.

The BSP has named former legislator Bhim Rao Ambedkar as its candidate while the SP has nominated actress-turned-politician Jaya Bachchan for the fourth time.

In Bihar, there are six vacancies.

The Congress and BJP announced the list of candidates only yesterday.

As Monday is the last day to fill up forms for Rajya Sabha polls, around 12:00 pm, senior journalist Kumar Ketkar submitted his application from Congress party.

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.

RJD state President Ram Chander Purve said both Jha and Karim were chosen by party chief Lalu Prasad, now lodged in a Ranchi jail in connection with two fodder scam cases.

The BJP has already fielded union ministers Purshottam Rupala and Mansukh Mandavia, while the Congress has nominated Amiben Yagnik and tribal leader Naren Rathwa.

"As part of the political strategy to counter the Congress' disruptive practices, we have fielded our third candidate, Kiritsinh Rana".

"There is infighting in the Congress and they are confused about their candidates". Saroj Pandey will represent BJP from Chhattisgarh.

According to party announcement, Kirori Lal Meena and Madan Lal Saini will be BJP candidates from Rajasthan.

To a query, Mr Chandrasekhar said the natural alliance and relationship with BJP for many years was one of the reasons for him to join the saffron party.

Syed Naseer Hussain, L Hanumanthaiah and G.C. Chandrashekar will be contesting from Karnataka. "We have chose to join hands with the secular forces against the oppressive and communal politics and chose to vote for the BSP candidate", Lallu said, adding that the central leadership of the party has been apprised of the decision and they have supported it.
