Kuldeep Bishnoi spoils the math of Congress in Haryana
In Haryana, a counter-attack has started between Congress Legislature Party leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda and angry Congress MLA Kuldeep Vishnoi. From the Congress high command to the Rajya Sabha candidate from Haryana, Ajay Maken is trying to convince Vishnoi. The matter of concern for Congress is that a candidate needs 31 votes to go to Rajya Sabha from Haryana and Congress has only 31 MLAs. To avoid cross voting, Congress has sent all its MLAs to Raipur. Ajay Maken himself is trying to believe in Vishnoi. It is being hoped that if Rahul Gandhi meets Vishnoi, then things can be done. The victory of the BJP candidate in a Rajya Sabha seat in Haryana is certain. In the second seat, Ajay Maken of Congress is pitted against independent Karthikeya Sharma, who has the support of JJP and BJP. Vishnoi has kept suspense regarding his vote.

Six candidates are in the fray for four Rajya Sabha seats from Karnataka. There will be a close fight for the fourth seat. Despite not having enough votes to win the fourth seat, all the three political parties of the state BJP, Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) have fielded candidates for this seat. Former Union Minister Jairam Ramesh and State General Secretary Mansoor Ali Khan and former JD(S) MP D Kupendra Reddy are included from the Congress. Interestingly, despite JD(S) seeking support to ensure Reddy’s election, the Congress did not withdraw the nomination papers and issued a whip to all its MLAs to vote for the party’s candidates. The JDS has sought the support of the Congress by calling for secularism and keeping communal forces at bay. It is said that party chief HD Deve Gowda had also discussed with Congress President Sonia Gandhi in this regard. The announcement of Khan’s name as the party’s second candidate is a surprise move by the Congress, as it has enough votes to win just one seat.
