While, Desam Party (TDP), Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD), Janta Dal (United) were the other parties who announced the names of the candidates for Rajya Sabha. By picking Muraleedharan, who belongs to the same community as that of Thushar, BJP is seeking to silence any allegations that may come up if a person from another community is fielded instead of Thushar. Agarwal joined the BJP on Monday.

Hussain, a Youth Congress leader, obtained doctorate in global politics from the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.

The selection of Congress candidates, which has sprung a surprise, is being seen as AICC President Rahul Gandhi's assertive stand to back young leaders with a clean, non-controversial image.

The BJP, with its tally of 122 in the Assembly, is poised to get three Rajya Sabha seats, while the Shiv Sena, Congress and the NCP look set to get one each.

Uttar Pradesh will have 10 vacancies.

"Congress has fielded two candidates for Gujarat and are supporting an independent candidate who is wishing to fight against the BJP". The BSP has nominated Bhimrao Ambedkar while Jaya Bachchan will be the SP's candidate.

In Bihar, there are six vacancies.

The BJP on Monday queered the pitch for Rajya Sabha elections by fielding additional candidates in Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra, putting to test the attempts to forge an Opposition alliance.

According to party announcement, Kirori Lal Meena and Madan Lal Saini will be BJP candidates from Rajasthan.

The last date for withdrawal of candidature is 15 March.

The Congress and BJP announced the list of candidates only yesterday. "This would help us win the third seat as well", said deputy chief minister Nitin Patel.

Former Mahila Morcha leader Saroj Pande is the BJP nominee from Chhattisgarh.

In Maharashtra, where its age-old alliance with the Shiv Sena looks to be all but over, the party has made a decision to support former chief minister Narayan Rane. Rao hails from Andhra Pradesh, where the BJP's ties with its ally TDP have soured of late with the latter withdrawing its members from the central government. Consequently, Congress has named L. Hanumanthaiah, Syed Naseer Hussain and GC Chandrashekhar. The party, however, expects to get the support of seven JD (S) rebels and some independents and others. A candidate can score a straight win with 38 votes.
