Election for the Rajya Sabha seats will be held on March 23, the sources said.
The BJP is set to increase the tally of its Rajya Sabha numbers from Maharashtra and in the state Legislative Council owing to its improved performance in the 2014 state assembly elections, where it emerged as the single largest party, but fell short of majority on its own.
With a total of 122 MLAs plus the support of 15 others from allied parties and Independents, the BJP could get three candidates elected, but even with support from other non-BJP legislators and the possibility of transfer of extra votes from the Shiv Sena, its prospects of getting a fourth candidate elected seemed bleak.
Extending his best wishes to BJP National General Secretary Saroj Pandey on her filing nominations for Rajya Sabha, Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh said now that the nomination process has been completed, it is for sure that she will be elected to Rajya Sabha.
The BJP will require six more votes to make its ninth candidate sail through. The candidates for all six seats from the state were elected unopposed today. Mr Prakash had already declared that he will field at least 40 candidates in the Assembly polls to defeat the Congress candidates. But, as was expected, Sonkar and Bishnoi withdrew their nominations on Thursday to let Anil Agarwal continue as BJP's ninth candidate.
