The four candidates who filed nomination for Maharashtra are Union Human Resource Minister Prakash Javdekar, former CM Narayan Rane, V Murlidharan and state women commission's Chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar. A Congress-supported independent candidate, P K Valera (retd IAS) also filed his nominations papers on Monday. The BJP will be putting up three candidates, the Congress two, and there will be an independent candidate. "Aren't there any people from Karnataka for BJP to choose from?" the Congress asked, in a social media campaign called 'Namage Mosa - BJP Cheats Karnataka'.

On Monday, a high drama played out for five hours outside the office of Returning Officer A B Karova with rumours that Congress leader Rajeev Shukla will file nominations instead of former Union minister Naran Rathwa.

If elected, this will be Chandrasekhar's third stint as a Rajya Sabha member.

Earlier on Friday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said the Trinamool Congress will back Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

"Today's episode has brought to the fore tremendous infighting in the Congress camp". The polling and counting will take place on March 23. Prasad, whose current Rajya Sabha term is ending in April, expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah "for giving me this opportunity to serve the people once again".

Ahead of the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections, the BJP has added an element of unpredictability to the otherwise tiresome and predictable polls by fielding a fourth candidate from the state.

The Congress has fielded L Hanumanthaiah, Syed Naseer Hussain and GC Chandrasekhar from Karnataka.

However, state Congress President Bharatsinh Solanki said both Yagnik and Rathwa would win their seats.

Gujarat's Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said there was huge discontent within the Congress and that there are chances of cross voting. However, with no choice left, the JD (S) now makes a plan forward, to get ahead with the political game. The Nationalist Congress Party's 41 votes will be good enough for its candidate Vandana Chavan. Rest of the papers were filed by Anil Desai from the Sena, Vandana Chavan from the NCP, and Kumar Ketkar from the Congress.
