Rajya Sabha elections are in progress | Latest Political News
A down-to-the-wire contest is likely in some of the seats in the high-stakes Rajya Sabha elections in seven states, especially in Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka and Haryana, where the fate of candidates including senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal and senior lawyer R K Anand is being decided on Saturday. Polling began at assembly premises in the state capitals at 9 am and will continue till 4 pm.
While 30 of the total 57 seats in the current round of biennial elections have already been decided without a contest, Saturday’s polls will decide the fate of remaining 27 as BJP and Congress will be engaged in a keen battle for some of the states. Allegations of bribing JD(S) and Independent MLAs have marred the polls in Karnataka but the Election Commission has rejected demands for cancelling them.
