BJP candidates for Rajya Sabha election from Madhya Pradesh-Chandan Mitra and Anil Madhav Dave and Congress nominee Vijay Laxmi Sadho filed their nomination in Bhopal on Monday, the last date to file nominations for poll.
The election to Rajya Sabha is scheduled to be held on June 17.
Mitra and Dave, accompanied by the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, BJP state unit chief Prabhat Jha, among other leaders, filed two sets of papers each in the office of the returning officer A K Payasi in the State Assembly.
Around 1 pm, Sadho, accompanied by Leader of Opposition in State Assembly Jamuna Devi, her deputy Rakesh Singh Chaturvedi, State Congress president Suresh Pachouri and others filed her papers for the biennial elections to the Upper House of Parliament.
With only three candidates filing their papers, the polling is unlikely to take place given that Mitra, Dave and Sadho will be elected unopposed on June 17.
The scrutiny and withdrawal of nomination papers will take place on June 8 and June 10 respectively.
