No Sam Pitroda, outsiders for Rajya Sabha from Karnataka: Siddaramaiah

Jaitley is now a Rajya Sabha member from Gujarat, Pradhan is a member from Bihar and Javadekar is an MP from Madhya Pradesh.

Just days ahead of upcoming Rajya Sabha polls scheduled for next month, the Bharatiya Janata Party released a list of eight nominees, which include some big names like Arun Jaitley, Ravishankar Prasad and Dharmendra Pradhan.

Jaitley could have been re-elected easily from Gujarat where the party is in a position to win two of four seats, but he was shifted to accommodate two ministers from the state - Parshottam Rupala and Mansukh Mandaviya. One is from the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), another, Pramod Tiwari, is from the Congress, Vinay Katiyar is from the BJP and one more seat is to be contested because BSP supremo Mayawati resigned from the Upper House past year.

Notification has been issued for six Rajya Sabha seats fromBihar, setting the election process in motion.

"Gujarat Congress president Bharatsinh Solanki, and leaders who lost the Assembly polls, like Shaktisinh Gohil, Arjun Modhwadia, Siddarth Patel and Tushar Chaudhary are likely to be in fray for the seats", a party source said. The recent core committee meeting of the state BJP left it to its central leadership to take a call on the candidate for the Rajya Sabha poll and its parliamentary board is expected to meet within a week to take a decision.
