ANDHRA PRADESH

Ruling YSR Congress in Andhra Pradesh has bagged all four Rajya Sabha in the biennal election. Deputy Chief Minister Pilli Subhash Chandra Bose, minister Mopidevi Venkata Ramana, industrialist Parimal Nathwani and realtor Ayodhya Rami Reddy of the YSRC got 38 votes each. 

MADHYA PRADESH

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has won two seats while Congress managed one. Veteran Congress leader Digvijay Singh won from the grand-old party while BJP's Jyotiraditya Scindia and Sumer Singh Solanki got elected. Congress candidate and Dalit leader Phool Singh Barriya lost the election.

JHARKHAND

BJP and JMM have won one seat each in Jharkhand Rajya Sabha elections. BJP candidate Deepak Prakash and JMM's Shibu Soren were announced the winners. The polling for the two Rajya Sabha seats in Jharkhand was necessitated as the tenure of Independent member Parimal Nathwani and RJD's Prem Chand Gupta had ended in April.

GUJARAT

Counting of votes is suffering delays as the Congress demanded that the Election Commission invalidate two BJP votes. Leader of Opposition Paresh Dhanani said the Congress has sought cancellation of votes cast by BJP MLA Kerisinh Solanki and minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama. The matter was rejected by the EC observer and sent to Delhi office for final decision.

MEGHALAYA

Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) candidate Dr WR Kharlukhi won the lone Rajya Sabha seat from Meghalaya defeating Congress candidate Kennedy Khyriem. He secured 39 out of the 58 valid votes, defeating his rival Kennedy Khyriem of the Congress who got 19 votes. The Congress has 19 MLAs in the 60-member House.

MANIPUR

BJP candidate Leisemba Sanajaoba won the election to the lone Rajya Sabha seat in Manipur, defeating the Congress nominee in a high-voltage political drama. Sanajaoba, the titular king of Manipur, received 28 votes. Congress candidate T Mangi Babu got 24 votes. The win will be a major boost to the ruling BJP-led coalition in the state which was on a sticky wicket after the rebellion of nine MLAs.
