All three BJP candidates for the Rajya Sabha biennial election, Dr Kirori Meena, Bhupender Yadav and Madan Lal Saini appear set to be elected unopposed as no other contestant has filed their nomination, an official said.
Meena, who separated from the BJP in 2008, rejoined the party yesterday along with his two National Peoples Party (NPP) MLAs.
Meena will walk shoulder-to-shoulder in making the state Congress-free, Raje said, adding that the BJP will form governments in the Centre and in Rajasthan. The chief minister was accompanied by state BJP president Ashok Parnami when Meena filed his candidature.
"We will work for the Mission-180 seats in the Rajasthan Assembly elections slated this year-end, Meena said adding he would try to convince other BJP dissidents to join the party.
Opposition Congress had announced it would not field candidates for the biennial Rajya Sabha election. The tenure of Yadav and two Congress MPs Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Narendra Budania is expiring on April 3.
