New Delhi: Sabir Ali, who was re-elected to
Rajya Sabha on a JD-U ticket, on Monday took oath in the House.

Ali, who was elected to the Rajya Sabha in 2008 as an LJP
nominee, took oath in Urdu swearing in the name of Almighty.

Last week, he was elected unopposed in a by-poll for one
seat in Bihar.

After taking oath, Ali went up to the Chairman Hamid
Ansari to greet him. Ansari congratulated him.

Pankaj Bora, who was elected to the Upper House from Assam
as a Congress candidate, was, however, not present to take
oath.

Bora, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi`s press adviser and
former minister, was elected unopposed to the Rajya Sabha to
fill the vacancy caused by the death of sitting Congress
member Silvius Condpan in October.
