Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Patel and state party president Jitu Vaghani, who is also an MLA, held a meeting. Bajpai, a Brahmin leader from Hardoi, joined the BJP previous year.

In Gujarat, the Congress list has created division among leaders.

But the BJP has now forced a vote with its last-minute nomination of the state women's commission chairperson, Vijaya Rahatkar, as its fourth candidate.

Arithmetically for the Bahujan Samaj Party, which has 19 MLAs in the 403-member UP Assembly, the likely support by the Samajwadi Party which has 10 additional first preference votes, the Congress (seven) and the Rashtriya Lok Dal (one), will help it get 37 votes required for a win. "This takes the total number of candidates in the fray to 14, with SP's Jaya Bachchan and BSP's Bhimrao Ambedkar having already filed nominations earlier", returning officer Poonam Saxena told PTI.

In Bihar, there are six vacancies.

The BJP, which re-nominated its Union ministers to Rajya Sabha last week, announced a list of 18 candidates that include some fresh faces and some newly inducted veterans, with an eye on caste representation.

If the highly placed organisation sources are to be believed, the axe fell on Kaushik because he being sure of his candidature, had purchased the nomination form despite the fact the Central Committee was yet to announce the candidatures.

This aggression by the BJP was on expected lines as it is short in the Rajya Sabha.

In Kerala, MP Veerendra Kumar, who walked out of Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United) a year ago, filed his nomination as an independent candidate.

Had the JD (S) fielded party general secretary, Danish Ali, it could have counted on Congress support, but it was not keen on Mr Farooq, according to sources.

From Rajasthan, the BJP has opted for Kirori Lal Meena, an influential caste leader who fought against the party in the last Assembly polls in Rajasthan, where it suffered huge setbacks in the recent bypolls and civic elections which were won by the Congress and were seen as a vote against the Vasundhara Raje government.

Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Narayan Rane has also been named for the RS berth.

The other nominee Ajay Pratap Singh, belongs to the state's Vindhya region while Soni, who is the national president of Misa Bandi Sangthan, represents the Mahakoushal area.

G.C. Chandrashekar is the third candidate of the Congress. The Nationalist Congress Party's 41 votes will be good enough for its candidate Vandana Chavan.

Rest of the papers were filed by Anil Desai from the Sena, Vandana Chavan from the NCP, and Kumar Ketkar from the Congress.
