In the Rajya Sabha elections, BJP has presented a big challenge to the opposition.

New Delhi: A decision by the BJP has increased public interest in the Rajya Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh. In fact, on the last day of nomination, BJP has made the contest interesting by fielding Harsh Mahajan from Himachal Pradesh, while in Uttar Pradesh too, the party has created a political stir by fielding the 8th candidate. This step towards elimination of nominations has increased the interest of the people in the Rajya Sabha elections in these two states.

Harsh Mahajan filed nomination papers on Thursday.

Let us tell you that in Himachal Pradesh, one Rajya Sabha seat is going to be elected and till Wednesday this seat was going to the Congress. Now on the last day of nomination, BJP has fielded its candidate, after which it has become clear that Rajya Sabha seat in Himachal too will be decided by voting. Now BJP’s Harsh Mahajan is contesting against Congress candidate Abhishek Manu Singhvi in ​​this seat. On the second day of the budget session, BJP leader Harsh Mahajan filed his nomination papers at the Assembly Secretariat. Meanwhile, many BJP leaders including former Chief Minister Jairam Thakur were present with him.

BJP hopes for cross-voting.

It was earlier expected that the BJP would not field its candidate against the Congress candidate, but the party took this decision due to the ongoing rift between the Congress. Harsh Mahajan was earlier in the Congress and on 28 September 2022, he bid farewell to the party and joined the BJP. Harsh was considered to be quite close to former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh. On the one hand, there is a rift between the organization and the government in Himachal Congress, on the other hand, Pratibha Singh often makes statements against the government. BJP hopes disgruntled Congress MLAs can cross-vote.

BJP’s 8th candidate brings a twist in UP

BJP has also made the Rajya Sabha battle interesting by fielding its 8th candidate in UP. BJP has made Sanjay Seth its eighth candidate from UP. The case of Akhilesh Yadav’s third Rajya Sabha candidate seems to be stalled due to the nomination of former Samajwadi Party treasurer Sanjay Seth. This decision of BJP is unsettling in SP as elections are to be held in 10 Rajya Sabha seats of UP and the calculation of 9 seats is clear. BJP has winning numbers of 7 candidates, while SP can also field its candidates in 2 seats, but none of the parties have full numbers for 10th seat.
