BJP registers protest with EC against Cong's RS nominee Rathwa in Gujarat

15 March 2018

BJP has 18 candidates for Rajya Sabha polls.

The Congress fielded Leader of Opposition in Assembly Paresh Dhanani and Shaktisinh Gohil, who swung the last Rajya Sabha polls in favour of Ahmed Patel, to pursue Rathwa's case.

Adding a new twist to the electoral contest for the four Rajya Sabha seats in Gujarat, the BJP on Tuesday questioned the "no dues certificates" issued to Congress candidate Naran Rathwa by the Lok Sabha Secretariat, alleging that the certificates issued to him may have been forged.

The Crown's Claire Foy was paid less than co-star Matt Smith
However, I would like to state for the record that her getting paid less than Matt Smith is bullshit of the highest order. Minter said the disparity "does not stack up" given that Foy's profile matched Smith's by the start of the second series.

"We have informed the Election Commission about the irregularities in the nomination forms of Congress Rajya Sabha candidate Naran Rathwa and independent PK Valera", Mr Goyal later told reporters.

Earlier in the day, the Congress too raised objections to the nomination forms of BJP candidates - Union Ministers Mansukh Mandavia and Purushottam Rupala as well as Kiritsinh Rana.

The Returning Officer also accepted the nomination of second official Congress candidate Ami Yagnik. "We wanted to make sure that all the necessary documents were submitted with the nomination". As Javdekar is union minister his win is considered a surety; Rane was persuaded by BJP to accept the nomination after lots of efforts so his win is also considered to be a foregone conclusion and since Murlidharan is a senior party leader from Kerala and needed to be accommodated, his win is also considered to be a sure shot.

Meghan McCain calls Clinton family 'virus' in Democratic politics
Sherrod Brown (D.) said he doesn't "really care" about Clinton saying things unhelpful to the party. The campaign of US president Donald Trump , on the other hand, was "looking backwards".

The term of four members of the Upper House - Rajiv Chandrashekar (Independent), Rahman Khan (Congress), Basavaraj Patil Sedam and R Ramakrishna (Both BJP) - would get ended on April 2, 2018.

"BJP's a party of lies. After 6 hours, my form was sanctioned", Rathwa said.

The party's move comes ahead of the upcoming Rajya Sabha election scheduled to be held on March 23. The BJP fielded senior leaders, including Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel and Vaghani to ensure the rejection of Rathwa's nomination. "The party made a decision to avoid all that, especially when it is still at loggerheads with the BJP at the centre and state", said a senior TDP leader, who was unwilling to be identified.

Apple now allows accessory manufacturers to make 3.5mm-to-Lightning cables
The new cable would improve the user experience from an audio perspective and add more durability to the entire product. This is a helpful move for users as more tech companies are beginning to use USB-C ports on their products.

However, the entry of Valera, a former IAS officer and current general secretary of the Gujarat Congress, has made the elections interesting.
