BJP levels charges of forgery on Congress Rajya Sabha candidate Naran Rathwa

On the last day of withdrawal of nominations, none of the candidates pulled out. "We will go to polls in Karnataka maintaining equal distance from the Congress and the BJP", Gowda said. In case the court does not allow the seven JD (S) MLAs to vote, it would be hard for CM Siddaramaiah to ensure the victory of the third Congress candidate.

Ruling out support to B.M. Farooq of the JD (S) for the third Rajya Sabha seat from the State, the Congress has made a decision to field AICC Spokesperson Syed Naseer Hussain, former Chairman of KUWS&DB G.C. Chandrashekar, and former MLC L. Hanumanthaiah. He was also an MLA from Pallahara Assembly segment from 2000-2004. The party is also eyeing 7 MLAs of the Congress through Naresh Agarwal.

CM said she had raked up issues pertaining to state with the central leadership of party as party's National General Secretary and now that she's going to be elected to Rajya Sabha, she can raise up issues in Parliament as well.

Vijaya Rahatkar, who is Chairperson of Maharshtra State Women's Commission, was the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party's fourth candidate for the March 23 elections.

On 13 March, the BJP took objection to Rathwa's candidature and alleged that he had filed a "fake" no-dues certificate with his nomination forms. The candidates for all six seats from the state were elected unopposed today.

Former Rajya Sabha member Dhiraj Prasad Sahu was nominated as Congress candidate from Jharkhand.

After the humiliating defeat in by-polls on Gorakhur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats, the BJP will put in all its might to ensure win of its ninth candidate against BSP candidate Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar to seek political revenge from BSP Supremo Mayawati.

With the BJP nominee withdrawing her papers, the election of the remaining six candidates, including Union Minister Prakash Javadekar, is now a mere formality.
