Patna: The nomination papers of all six candidates in fray for the five Rajya Sabha seats from Bihar were today found valid during the scrutiny of papers, the Additional Returning Officer (ARO) Md Zainul said.

The nomination of all six candidates - RCP Singh and Upendra Kushwaha (JD(U)), Ram Vilas Paswan and Ram Kripal Yadav (LJP-RJD), Rajiv Pratap Rudi (BJP) and BG Uday (Independent) have been found valid, he said.

The last date of withdrawal of candidature has been fixed for June 10 next and the election will be held on June 17 next, if required, Zainul said.

However, the JD(U) nominee Kushwaha had a minor scare when one of the three sets of nomination papers that he had filed was rejected on technical grounds as the documents annexed were photocopies.
