Elections for 19 Rajya Sabha seats today: All you need to know

Leaders are voting for elections to 24 Rajya Sabha seats, most of them put on hold since March by the coronavirus pandemic. The build-up to the elections, in which seats from 10 states are at stake, was marked by a resurgence of resort politics, resignations, switching sides and allegations of bribery. In two states, Gujarat and Rajasthan, the Congress whisked away its flock, accusing the BJP of attempts to buy its MLAs. The drama was more elaborate in Gujarat, where the BJP had fought a pitched battle to grab the seat of senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel three years ago, and narrowly missed.  #RajyaSabhaelection #Congress #BJP
