Rajyasabha Elections are going to take place on 11th June for total 57 seats.
Rajasthan played a crucial part in the majority win of BJP in Loksabha Elections and now BJP wants to leave no stone unturned to take few more steps towards majority in Rajyasabha as well. So party supremo is taking special interest in candidates selection from Rajasthan.
Candidature of Om Mathur, the National Vice-President and Uttar Pradesh Election In Charge, has been proposed from Rajasthan for Rajyasabha Membership thanks to his closeness with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP National President Amit Shah.
Names of candidates had to be selected for 4 seats of Rajasthan and two names in form of Former Royal Member of Doongarpur Harshvardhan Singh & Retired Employee of Reserve Bank Of India Ram Kumar Verma (Bairwa) were already agreed upon in the meeting of State BJP election committee. Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje wasn’t interested in sending Om Mathur’s name for the post but she had to finally give her consent after receiving clear instructions from Party Supremo regarding Om Mathur. The last name to be proposed for the post shall be of Central Minister Vainkaiya Naidu
Om Prakash Mathur came close to Narendra Modi and Amit shah during his tenure as Gujarat Party In Charge. He tried for this post in 2014 but couldn’t make it to Rajyasabha at that time.
There are total 10 seats of Rajasthan in Rajyasabha. Elections shall be held on 4 seats. BJP’s win is certain on these seats. Post elections, BJP MP’s shall be posted on 8 seats, congress shall be placed only on 2 seats. After the elections to be held in 2018, for the first time, not a single Congress MP shall be placed on Rajyasabha seat of Rajasthan. All 10 MP’s shall be from BJP.
The elections shall bring a good news for BJP who is although a majority gained party in Loksabha but a minority gained party in Rajyasabha. Slowly and steadily, BJP is strengthening its position in Rajyasabha. Although BJP will still not gain majority during the entire tenure of Modi Government but the difference in seats between BJP and Congress will cut down to 9 after 11th June which is 15 currently.
BJP has been the only shining party in last 2 years and results are reflecting the shininess. Are you happy with the work of Modi & Co.? Have “Achhe Din” also arrive for the general public? Do give your comments.
