  • Shah Irani to contest Rajya Sabha polls from Gujarat says Nadda

During the visit, Mr Shah will interact with all the senior party leaders and also hold meetings with different officials, state BJP general secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak said here today.

BJP chief Amit Shah, Union Minister Smriti Irani and newly inducted former Congress MLA Balwantsinh Rajput, who resigned on Thursday and joined the saffron party, filed their nomination papers for the upcoming Rajya Sabha polls on Friday. She filled her nomination after Amit Shah.

The retirement of Ahmed Patel (Cong), Dilipbhai Pandya (BJP) and Irani (BJP) - all from Gujarat - is due on August 18.

The announcement came after BJP Parliamentary Board met here to take stock of the Bihar situation following Nitish Kumar's resignation as the State Chief Minister. Shah, now a legislator in Gujarat, will be making his debut in Parliament once he is elected, given the numbers the ruling BJP enjoys in the state assembly.
