Rajya Sabha Polls:4 BJP Candidates from Gujarat, Including Party Chief Nadda, File Nominations
Rajya Sabha Polls:4 BJP Candidates from Gujarat, Including Party Chief Nadda, File Nominations

In a significant move, all four Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidates hailing from Gujarat, including the party's national president J.P. Nadda, have formally submitted their nomination papers for the impending Rajya Sabha elections. This development marks a crucial step in the party's strategy for securing representation in the upper house of the parliament.

The notable personalities among the nominees include Jashvantsinh Parmar, a prominent party figure from Godhra, renowned diamond magnate Govind Dholakia, and BJP leader Mayank Nayak. With a united front, the BJP aims to consolidate its position and reinforce its influence in the legislative landscape.

The nomination filing ceremony witnessed the presence of Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and the state BJP chief C.R. Paatil, who stood alongside Nadda as he submitted his candidacy at the state legislative assembly complex in Gandhinagar. The returning officer, Rita Mehta, duly accepted the nomination papers from all four BJP contenders, formalizing their entry into the electoral fray.

However, a lone independent candidate named Paresh Mulani, who filed his nomination a day earlier, faces imminent rejection during the scrutiny process. Mulani's candidature lacked the requisite support from any Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA), a mandatory criterion as per the stipulated rules, clarified Mehta.

With no contenders fielded by other political parties and the deadline for filing nominations expiring on Thursday, the path seems clear for the BJP's nominees to clinch victory unopposed. This anticipation sets the stage for a smooth electoral process, underscoring the BJP's dominance in the state's political arena.

The Rajya Sabha elections, slated for February 27, were announced by the Election Commission on January 29, encompassing a total of 56 seats across 15 states. As the political landscape gears up for this crucial event, all eyes are now on the BJP's candidates as they embark on their journey towards securing parliamentary representation.
