Ravi Shankar Prasad, five others file nomination from Bihar

Congress on Monday nominated senior journalist Kumar Ketkar from Maharashtra and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) nominated state women's commission president Vijaya Rahatkar's name for the upcoming Rajya Sabha polls.

Mr Rane has accepted BJP's offer for a Rajya Sabha seat and today was the last day for filing nominations for the March 23 election to the Upper House of Parliament.

The biennial elections will be held on March 23 to replace the 58 Rajya Sabha Members.

Former Chief Minister Narayan Rane, who founded the Maharashtra Swabhiman Paksh past year, filed his nomination from the BJP's quota.

The 65-year-old Konkan strongman, along with Maharasthra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, had met BJP president Amit Shah in New Delhi last week.

The NDA would still need 11 more and may place its hopes on engineering cross voting from Congress through former PCC president Ashok Choudhary, who joined JD (U) recently.

Congress spokesman Shaktisinh Gohil, however, said Shukla was not going to file nomination and added that the party's candidates are Rathwa and Yagnik.

According the official announcement, BJP has fielded eight candidates for the 10 Rajya Sabha seats from Uttar Pradesh. The ruling party is hoping that by engineering defection in ranks of Congress and NCP and getting extra votes from Shiv Sena its fourth candidate will sail through.

Independent MLAs like Raghuraj Pratap Singh aka Raja Bhaiyya, Vinod Saroj, Aman Mani Tripathi and Vijay Mishra sided with the BJP in the presidential election.

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 Congress is pinning its hopes on one out of the two Rajya Sabha seats in Jharkhand.

Patel said the BJP fielded Rana, former MLA of Limbdi, as a third nominee to take advantage of infighting in the Congress.
