The election for the four Rajya Sabha seats from Gujarat took a dramatic turn on Monday, the last day of the filing nominations, when the ruling BJP and Opposition Congress ended up fielding three candidates each, leading to a contest. Valera filed his nomination papers apparently with the support of some Congress MLAs, after two official candidates Amiben Yagnik and tribal leader Naran Rathwa filed their forms.

In the 224-member assembly, each candidate will require 44 votes to win a Rajya Sabha seat.

"As many as 11 BJP candidates and an independent filed their nomination papers today". However the party made a decision to filed Vijaya Rahatkar, the fourth candidate. The NDA now has 83 members in the 245 member Rajya Sabha.

"The nomination papers will be scrutinised on Tuesday and last date for withdrawal of candidates is on Thursday". In the House of 182 legislators, BJP has a strength of 99 against the Congress party's 77. The Shiv Sena has 63 members which means it has a surplus of 21 votes after it elects one of its candidates.

Union social justice and empowerment minister Thawar Chand Gehlot said that his selection as nominee for Rajya Sabha seat shows that he is giving 100 percent to his work.

Since the BSP has only 19 MLAs in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly and will not be able to win a seat on its own, it has been assured of the support of the Samajwadi Party following an understanding between former chief ministers Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav.

Eight BJP candidates, including Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, filed their nominations in the central hall of the Vidhan Bhavan on Monday, which was the last day for submitting papers for the elections.

"There is infighting in the Congress and they are confused about their candidates".

The BJP can not win the fourth seat even with the excess Sena votes, but there are smaller parties and Independents to tap. BJP's Rajya Sabha candidates Union Minister Thawarchand Gehlot, Dharmendra Pradhan, BJP General Secretary Ajay Pratap Singh and National President of MISA Organisation Kailash Soni reached Assembly and filed their nomination papers in presence of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, State BJP President Nandkumar Singh Chouhan, State Organisation General Secretary Suhas Bhagat and other senior party leaders.

Sources claimed that after SP MP Naresh Agarwal was denied renomination by Akhilesh Yadav for another term in the Rajya Sabha, the possibility of cross-voting by some of the SP MLAs in favour of the BJP candidates had increased. With this, the YSRCP is all set to win the third one easily.
