    RS Polls: Congress Likely To Nominate Priyanka Gandhi From Assam

    Terms of the three Rajya Sabha seats in Assam will expire on April 9th, 2020

    Assam Congress President Ripun Bora on March 9th, 2020, said that the national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra could be the candidate for the third seat of the Rajya Sabha elections to be held on March 26th, 2020.

    Talking about All India United Democratic Front’s proposal to nominate Priyanka Gandhi for the third seat, Bora said, “We welcome AIUDF’s proposal. Congress does not have sufficient numbers in the parliament. So, we have to take the support of other parties to field a candidate.”

    Besides, he said that the party high-command will take the final call whether Priyanka will be the candidate or not.

    It may be mentioned that the terms of the three seats in Assam will expire on April 9th, 2020. The two Congress MPs – who switched to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) – whose term will end on April 9th, 2020 include Bhubaneswar Kalita and Sanjay Sinh. Biswajit Daimary is the BPF MP who will retire on April 9th, 2020.

    The biennial elections of 55 members of Rajya Sabha from 17 states will be held on March 26th, 2020. The counting of votes will also take place the same day. The members will retire in April 2020.

    The other states are Maharashtra, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Manipur Rajasthan and Meghalaya.
