Arun Jaitley, Veerendra Kumar to contest RS election today

This clearly proves that some of the BJP's allies cross voted and it was because of this that Anil Agarwal got less than the allotted 28 votes. He was referring to his father, whose Rajya Sabha term ends on April 2, and SP nominee Jaya Bachchan. In a tweet, Mr. Modi hoped that the newly elected MPs would effectively voice the aspirations of the states they represent.

Counting of ballots will be taken up at five in the evening.

As the parties totted up the numbers, BSP MLA Anil Singh indicated that he had cross-voted in favour of the BJP, saying "I am with Maharaj-ji", a reference to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The BSP had made senior party leader Satish Chandra Misra as his poll agent while Shailendra Yadav of the SP is the polling agent, state parliamentary affairs minister Suresh Kumar Khanna is the polling agent of the ruling BJP.

With 18 lawmakers, Mayawati's candidate needed the first preference votes of 37 to win a Rajya Sabha seat. The BJP also secured one seat in Karnataka with Rajeev Chandrasekhar's win.

- Congress Abhishek Manu Singhvi wins Rajya Sabha elections from West Bengal, says, "it is humbling and uplifting, it is a result of cooperation between different groups and MLAs.' - Counting of votes for Rajya Sabha elections in UP begins after clearance from the Election Commission".

The four-MLA strong Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), after being placated by BJP chief Amit Shah, and the Apna Dal (Sonelal) with nine MLAs have chose to vote for BJP nominees.

In West Bengal, Singhvi and four Trinamool Congress (TMC) candidates - Nadimul Haque, Subhasish Chakraborty, Abir Biswas and Santunu Sen - won the Rajya Sabha election, according to media reports.

CPI-M candidate Rabin Deb, backed by the Left Front, lost.

The ruling Congress on Friday won three seats and the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) one in the Rajya Sabha biennial election for four seats in Karnataka, said an election official. "BJP candidate Rajeev Chandrasekhar will get at least 50 votes".

With its strength in the Assembly, the Congress was sure of winning two seats and eyed the third seat and won it with the support of JDS rebels and independents. The Congress led UPA has 57 while the other parties together account for the remaining 100 seats. "It can take votes but not give votes in return", he said, a reference to the SP's victory with the help of BSP votes in the recent Lok Sabha bypolls in Gorakhpur and Phulpur. Its candidates - B Prakash, AB Lingaiah Yadav and J Santosh Kumar - were chosen to the Upper House. It has now widened the gap between it and the opposition Congress.

Despite the Bahujan Samaj Party suffering a loss in the Rajya Sabha polls where it failed to get its lone candidate to the Upper House, the party seems to be in no mood to break its alliance with the Samajwadi Party.

Pandey secured 51 votes in her favour while Sahu got only 36 votes.

In the 225-member state legislative assembly, including one nominated, the Congress has 122 legislators, BJP 48, JD-S 40 and seven are vacant. Meanwhile, extending their best wishes to Saroj Pandey, BJP Legislators Tokhanlal Sahu, Chunnilal Sahu and Khilawan Sahu have stated that the Congress by raking up caste issue in this election has tried to pollute the environment in the state.
