BJP moves EC against Congress' Rajya Sabha nominee in Gujarat

It is feared that Rathwa submitted an old certificate, although it is necessary to submit a new certificate.

Ms. Patel has sent her resignation to the party leaders.

Naqvi said they have demanded that the Congress candidate's nomination be quashed.

Naran Rathwa, former Union minister of state for railways, submitted a "no due certificate" from Parliament Secretariat, which is normally necessary for any former MP, contesting Rajya Sabha elections.

Goyal said the BJP delegation informed the EC about?irregularities? in nomination forms of Rathwa and also Valera.

BJP, which has enough numbers to elect only eight candidates to Rajya Sabha from Uttar Pradesh, fielded its ninth candidate - Anil Agarwal, who is chairman of HRIT Group of Institutes in Ghaziabad, making the task hard for BSP candidate Bhim Rao Ambedkar, who was hoping to go to Rajya Sabha with the support of SP and Congress MLAs.

By nominating 72-year-old Rajmani Patel, the Congress party has played safe and is seen as an attempt to woo OBCs.

Earlier, Rathwa said his documents were in order but BJP leaders put pressure on Returning Officer. "Rathwa had served as a central minister and the no-dues certificate he submitted was a fake one", alleged Vaghani.

Senior Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil told the media: "In the end, it is Satyameva Jayate (victory for truth)".

"The objections raised by the BJP during the scrutiny process of our Rajya Sabha candidates lack substance".

The BJP has fielded Union ministers Purshottam Rupala and Mansukh Mandavia, apart from former MLA Kiritsinh Rana. The Congress also extended support to independent candidate PK Valera, who is a Congress general secretary in the state unit. "There is no proper mention of criminal cases in Rathwa's affidavit".

In the 182-member House, the ruling BJP has 99 MLAs while the opposition Congress 77.

As each candidate needs 45 votes to win the contest, the Congress is in a position to get two of its nominees elected easily, while its third candidate with 37 votes will have to get 13 more votes to make up for the shortfall.
