3 file nominations for RS polls
A total of three candidates, including two from the Congress and an Independent, have filed their nomination papers for the forthcoming polls to two Rajya Sabha seats from the State.
Senior Congress leader and former State Minister Ripun Bora and former Union Minister Ranee Narah filed their nominations today as candidates from the ruling party, while noted businessman Mahavir Prasad Jain sprang a last-minute surprise by also filing his nomination papers with support of the Bodoland People’s Front (BPF).
Jain’s candidature has been proposed by 10 BPF MLAs.
Jain said he is expecting support from all political parties. However, there have been no official words from the BJP and the AGP with regard to the Rajya Sabha polls till the time of filing of this report.
