Rajya Sabha election-2018Yesterday the bi-annual election of Rajya Sabha was held in 58 seats. Out of these 58 seats, BJP has so far won 27 seats and Congress has won 9 seats. The results of 2 seats from Jharkhand are still awaited.
But the most remarkable results have come from Uttar Pradesh. Elections were held in 10 seats in the state. As per the strength of the BJP, SP and BSP, BJP was supposed to get 8 seats. Due to the new alliance of SP and BSP, both the parties were supposed to get 1 seat each. But it has been reported that there has been rampant cross-voting by the MLAs of SP and BSP who are not happy on this únholy' alliance, BSP could not win 1 seat. And Mayawati's loss is BJP's gain. So, BJP has won 9 out of 10 seats from Uttar Pradesh where it was supposed to get 8.
Undoubtedly, the election result would strengthen BJP in Rajya Sabha.
