Gujarat RS polls: BJP continues to raise objections against Congress candidate”

Naran Rathwa, former Union minister of state for railways, submitted a "no due certificate" from Parliament Secretariat, which is normally necessary for any former MP, contesting Rajya Sabha elections.

"Of the five candidates, four have filed nominations on the last date (Monday), including three from the Congress and one from the BJP, while JD-S candidate B.M. Farooq had filed nomination on March 9", the Election Commission (EC) official told IANS here. Nomination papers of one Independent were rejected.

Elections to four Rajya Sabha seats from the State are scheduled on Mar.23. Congress' national spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil maintained that no orders were issued by the Lok Sabha speaker. If they (BJP) had believed in true democracy, we would not have had to spend hours in arguments.

"BJP's a party of lies". All this while the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party party was raising objection to his nomination.

In terms of caste equation, the party has chose to field Naseer Hussain, a minority community leader from Ballari, L. Hanumanthaiah, a dalit from Bengaluru Rural and G.C. Chandrashekar a Vokkaliga from Hassan.

The Shiv Sena on Tuesday asked how Narayan Rane be the ally BJP's candidate for Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra when he is not a member of the saffron party. The Returning Officer eventually ruled in Rathwa's favour and accepted his nomination form. Find us on Facebook too!

Meanwhile, the BJP has reportedly chose to field Rajiv Chandrashekar, who hails from Kerla, as its candidate due to pressure from the RSS.

"Vats is presently holding the post of Chief Executive Officer and Chief Adviser at the Maharaja Agarsen Medical College and Research Institute at Agroha, in Hisar, which is an office of profit, but he has not disclosed this fact in his nomination papers", Dalal alleged.

The Congress candidates are L. Hanumanthaiah, G.C. Chandrasekhar and Syed Naseer Hussain, and BJP candidate is Rajeev Chandrashekar, who is seeking a second term, as his first term as an Independent member ends on April 2. Independent candidate PK Valera is also backed by the Congress.

Among the seven nominations accepted was BJP's dummy candidate Rajnikant Patel.

The last day of withdrawal of candidature is March 15.
