Before the Lok Sabha elections 2024, elections will be held for 56 Rajya Sabha seats in various states of the country. Various parties including BJP have announced their candidates for this election. However, the biggest update in this election has come out that Congress MP Sonia Gandhi is also going to file nomination for Rajya Sabha. NNI has reported quoting sources that Sonia Gandhi will file nomination for Rajya Sabha elections tomorrow on Wednesday.
From which state will you file nomination?
According to ANI, Sonia Gandhi is all set for Rajya Sabha this time. She will file her nomination tomorrow on Wednesday. It is being told that Sonia Gandhi’s Rahul Gandhi and Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge will also be present while filing nomination. However, the final decision on which state Sonia Gandhi will contest from will be taken by tonight.
Discussion of these two states
This matter that Sonia Gandhi can be sent to Rajya Sabha has been in discussion for a long time. Many times the possibility has been expressed that Sonia may file nomination for Rajya Sabha from Telangana or Rajasthan. However, she will choose any state of South India for Rajya Sabha or will start it from North India. No information has been revealed in this regard. If sources are to be believed, the party does not want to give any chance to the opposing camp by announcing the names too many times. In such a situation, it is expected that the names to be sent by Congress to Rajya Sabha will be announced at the last minute.
Elections on 56 Rajya Sabha seats
Elections will be held on 56 Rajya Sabha seats in the states on 26 February. Out of these 56 seats, 9 seats are going to go to the account of Congress Party. BJP and TMC have announced the names of their respective candidates. However, the names have not been announced yet by Congress. According to the information, this time there is pressure from the state units of Congress that only a person from the said state should be sent to the Rajya Sabha. During the last Rajya Sabha elections, Maharashtra and Rajasthan did not have a candidate from these states.
