Drama over Naran Rathwa's Rajya Sabha nomination ends with acceptance

Drama over Naran Rathwa's Rajya Sabha nomination ends with acceptance

In the affidavit given by BJP leader V Muraleedharan along with his nomination paper for the Rajya Sabha election, there are some serious mistakes, according to reports.

"I thought my form will easily get passed". Meanwhile, BJP alleged that there was anger among Congress leaders as the party had sprung surprises in candidate selection. "Ahmed Patel too had won because we were in the right". The ground situation Eight candidates filed their nominations on Monday. You can trouble but never beat the truth. Thus this time chances are more for rejecting his nomination. On a query that another "Shakti Kendra" has been developed in the state, the State President said "we want that such "Shakti Kendras" should keep up developing from all parts of the state and such leaders through their work execution will bring good name to Chhattisgarh". As per the strength of each party in the assembly, BJP is eligible for three seats, while the Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP are allotted one member each.

The BJP has fielded Union ministers Purshottam Rupala and Mansukh Mandavia, apart from former MLA Kiritsinh Rana.

The nomination of the lone independent candidate for the Rajya Sabha polls in Uttar Pradesh was today rejected during scrutiny, but a contest will still take place if three of the 13 candidates left in the fray do not withdraw their papers on March 15.

"Rathwa had served as a central minister and the no-dues certificate he submitted was a fake one", alleged Vaghani.


The Congress deployed Leader of Opposition in Assembly, Paresh Dhanani, and senior party leader Shaktisinh Gohil to put forward Rathwa's case.

As the Assembly session was going on, the focus of attention remained the Returning Officer's chamber as scrutiny of nomination forms began on Tuesday. The BJP fielded senior leaders, including Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel and Vaghani to ensure the rejection of Rathwa's nomination.

The Congress has 123 members, including Speaker, BJP - 43, JD (S) - 37, Badavara Shramikarra Raithara Paksha - 3, Karnataka Janata Paksha - 2, Karnataka Makkala Paksha - 1, Independents - 8, and nominated - 1.

Extending support to Valera is seen as a tactical move of the Congress to save its second seat in case there is any threat to Rathwa's candidature.
