Thushar Vellapally out as V Muraleedharan set to contest RS seat

TMC chairperson and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday announced her party's support to Congress Rajya Sabha nominee Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

Former Union Minister Naranbhai Rathwa, who represented Chhota Udaipur Lok Sabha constituency in Gujarat for the five terms, was nominated along with Congress leader and prominent lawyer Amee Yajnik from Gujarat. The Congress is yet to name its candidate for its Rajya Sabha seat from Maharashtra.

The Congress's decision to field a candidate in Telangana is surprising as it is in not a position to win a seat.

Former Minister and Congress leader Rajmani Patel will contest from Madhya Pradesh.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has succeeded in ensuring complete local representation in selection of candidates as the party has chosen former MLC L Hanumanthaiah, AICC spokesperson Syed Naseer Hussain and KPCC general secretary G C Chandreshekar as its candidates.

San Francisco is Sherman's first visit and Pelissero reports that meetings with the team will continue through the afternoon. In addition, 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh was a member of the Seahawks from 2011 to 2013.

Meanwhile, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) had fielded Manoj Jha and Ashfaque Karim as Rajya Sabha candidates. The BJP has yet to declare its nominee for the third seat.

He formally introduced the three to the party MPs, MLAs and MLCs at a TRS Legislature Party meeting at Telangana Bhavan (the TRS headquarters) here on Sunday. TRS president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, announced on Sunday the names of Joginapalli Santosh Kumar, Badugula Lingaiah Yadav and Banda Prakash Mudiraj as candidates.

The last date of filing nominations is tomorrow, scrutiny of nomination papers would take place on March 13 and the last date of withdrawal is March 15.

At a time it enjoys unprecedented strength in several state assemblies, which elect members to the Upper House, the party has put its faith in a number of relatively young leaders, including Mr Baluni and Mr Rao, who are set to make their debut as parliamentarians, while also keeping social arithmetic in mind. So, the party opted to nominate Jaitley from Uttar Pradesh.

However, Congress spokesman Sachin Sawant said his party had two years ago given its one seat to the NCP during the biennial polls to get Council Chairman Ramraje Nimbalkar and Leader of Opposition Dhananjay Munde elected.
