BSP Chief Mayawati. | File PTI

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis accompanied Rane and former Kerala BJP president V Muraleedharan when they filed their nomination papers at the Vidhan Bhawan today. For now, the Congress holds two of these seats, NCP also holds two seats while the ruling BJP and Shiv Sena share the remaining two. "This might split the votes of Congress MLAs". Union Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways Mansukh L Mandaviya and Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Parshottam Rupala will contest election from Gujarat.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) nominee Prasad was accompanied by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi, state BJP President Nityanand Rai and a host of other state ministers and NDA leaders. One of its leaders P K Valera has filed his nomination as an independent candidate with the support of some Congress MLAs.

Vandana Chavan, outgoing member of Nationalist Congress Party and Anil Desai, outgoing member of Shiv Sena will continue their term as the respective parties have given tickets to the duo.

Indian Premier League Chairman and Congress leader Rajeev Shukla, party sources said in Delhi, was ready at the eleventh hour to fly to Gandhinagar in a chartered flight to ensure the Congress did not lose a sure seat if Rathwa's papers were rejected.

Polling will be held on March 23 and the results are expected to be declared the same evening. Consequently, Congress has named L. Hanumanthaiah, Syed Naseer Hussain and GC Chandrashekhar.

World health experts warn against 'Disease x'
However, he stressed that this was to "make sure we prepare and plan flexibility in terms of vaccines and diagnostic tests". The power of animal and human contact has ended up to be significantly more prominent as the world develops.

Former state minister Kiritsinh Rana would now be the BJP's third candidate though current legislature arithmetic can ensure sure victory for only two of its nominees for the four Rajya Sabha seats falling vacant.

To a query, Mr Chandrasekhar said the natural alliance and relationship with BJP for many years was one of the reasons for him to join the saffron party. Before the announcement of the candidature, there were huge speculations and all sorts of permutation-combination among the insiders in the party and in the media.

The 10 Congress candidates include senior journalist Kumar Ketkar from Maharashtra, and former Union minister Naranbhai Ratwa and the party's familiar television face Amee Yajnik from Gujarat.

However, state Congress President Bharatsinh Solanki said both Yagnik and Rathwa would win their seats.
