TRS fields 3 candidates for RS polls

Samajwadi Party's Akhilesh Yadav with Jaya Bachchan

The polling and counting of votes for 59 Rajya Sabha seats will take place on 23 March and the election is significant because almost a fourth of the Upper House is going to polls and it could impact the arithmetic of the house.

Of these 10, four are now held by the NCP, one by the Congress, two by the BJP, and one each by the Shiv Sena, the Lok Bharati.

Bose claimed that the Left Front was forced to name CPI-M leader Rabin Deb as their candidate for the fifth Rajya Sabha seat in the state.

To get elected to the Rajya Sabha, each candidate requires 37 votes.

Browns reportedly trade former first-round pick Danny Shelton to the Patriots
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter , the Browns traded a 2018 draft pick in addition to Shelton , for a conditional pick in 2019. It's expected that Shelton will act as a situational defensive tackle for the Patriots , primarily on rushing downs.

All the candidates are nearly certain to win due to party's strength in respective state assemblies. The three candidates will file their nominations at state assembly on Monday.

Saroj Pandey, who had lost the Lok Sabha polls in 2014, has been fielded from Chhattisgarh, Madan Lal Saini from Rajasthan, Lt Gen D P Vats (retd) from Haryana, Kailash Soni and Ajay Pratap Singh from Madhya Pradesh, Chandrasekhar from Karnataka and Sameer Oraon from Jharkhand. March 14 is the last date to submit the final list of candidates. The party high command made a decision to field local candidates keeping in view the assembly elections due later this year. The BJP chose to field its own candidate in the seat nevertheless.

Though the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) are fighting the bypolls in Gorakhpur and Phulpur together, it is likely that the two parties along with the Congress will support each other in the Rajya Sabha polls from Uttar Pradesh. Almost one fourth of the upper house is going to the polls that could alter the exiting math in the Rajya Sabha.

Union Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda likely to be elected unopposed for the Rajaya Sabha again as Congress today decide to not give candidate against him, Congress party announced on Sunday.
