Former PM Manmohan Singh files nomination for Rajya Sabha, will represent Rajasthan

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh filed his nomination papers on Tuesday for the by-poll elections for Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan.

The Minister had earlier represented Assam in the Upper House for 28 years. Rajasthan’s seat fell vacant owing to the death of state BJP (Bhartiya Janta Party) president Madan Lal Saini. Congress is now ruling in Rajasthan.

The Prime Minister was accompanied by Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan Sachin Pilot and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. Party members of Congress also took on social media sharing the update of Manmohan’s nominations.

Manmohan Singh’s tenure ended in the Rajya Sabha on June 14 this year. Rajasthan assembly has 200 seats. 2 seats have fallen vacant.
