Congress president Rahul Gandhi is in a piquant situation to find safe seats for family friend Sam Pitroda and AICC veteran general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi to reach Rajya Sabha. The BJP is also slated to get one seat. As soon as the House met for the day, members from various parties, including TDP, Shiv Sena, TRS, YSR Congress, AIADMK and TMC started raising slogans on their respective issues, following which Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the proceedings for an hour. Going by their present strength in the state Assembly, the ruling Congress can comfortably win three seats and the BJP one. Most party legislators and state BJP chief, B S Yeddyurappa are reportedly backing Mr. Sankeshwar.

Voting for three Rajya Sabha seats from Odisha on March 23.

However, this has not deterred four-time Rajya Sabha MP, K. Rehman Khan from lobbying hard to secure a fifth term in a row as Rajya Sabha MP with leaders in New Delhi. The Congress tally can increase from Gujarat, party sources said amid claims from several leaders including the likes of Shaktisinh Gohil and Arjun Modhwadia.

The BJP also chose to field Union Ministers Parshottam Rupala and Mansukh Mandaviya from Gujarat.

Finance minister Jaitely has been representing Gujarat in the Rajya Sabha for last three terms from 2000.




In the event of the election being contested, the poll will be held March 23, between 9am and 4pm in the Committee Room No 54 of the Orissa Legislative Assembly Secretariat Building.

In August past year, the BJP and the Congress had bitterly fought the Rajya Sabha polls. There will be a tough contest for the fourth seat between the Congress and the JDS.

About five to six Congress MLAs had resigned prior to the election, while some legislators had cross-voted.

The BJP on Wednesday announced the names of eight Rajya Sabha nominees, of which seven are Union ministers.
