The names were released after Congress president approved the list for the March 23 Rajya Sabha polls. This year, the Rajya Sabha elections will be held to elect members from 16 states. Hours after Congress announced its candidates, rumours began to do rounds that one of them, Naran Rathwa, would be replaced. In 2011, the Haryana government had appointed Vats as chairman of its public service commission.

G.C. Chandrashekar is presently the General Secretary of the KPCC.

The JD (S)' request to the Congress to support its candidate has not yielded positive results with the former pressing for three MPs to be nominated to negate the seat loss from Uttar Pradesh.

A delegation of senior party leaders, including Union ministers Piyush Goyal, Ravi Shankar Prasad and Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi went to the Election Commission on Tuesday night and sought that the candidature of Rathwa and a Congress-backed independent candidate P K Valera be declared invalid and illegal.

Other prominent names among the BJP's nominees are industrialist-politician Rajeev Chandrashekhar from Karnataka and Kirori Lal Meena from Rajasthan, who recently staged a return to the party after a decade.

Nominations submitted by the Congress party include party spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi from West Bengal, senior journalist Kumar Ketkar from Maharashtra, along with eight other candidates.

The first was that he was NDA convener for the Kerala unit and the party was eyeing that state next after its victory in the north east states.

The BJPs complaint ahead of the biennial polls to the Upper House on March 23 marks yet another instance of its all out attack on the opposition party over a Rajya Sabha election as it had earlier targeted its senior leader Ahmed Patel during polls previous year. The Nationalist Congress Party's 41 votes will be good enough for its candidate Vandana Chavan.

From Jharkhand, the party has chosen Sameer Uranv, who is said to be close to CM Raghubar Das.

The party's choice for two Rajya Sabha seats from the State has not gone down well with the cadres as more than 20 leaders were lobbying for a nomination. Both leaders belong to the Bundelkhand region, which could be significant in the assembly polls later this year.

Knowing pretty well that Rajya Sabha elections would not be a smooth sail in Gujarat, the ruling BJP has shifted Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for a "safer entry" into House of Elders from BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh.

The RJD has fielded its spokespersons Manoj Jha and Ashfaque Kareem.
