Dehra Dun: BJP's Tarun Vijay is all set to get elected to Rajya Sabha unopposed for the lone seat from Uttarakhand as his nomination papers were Tuesday found valid during scrutiny.

All the two sets of nomination papers of Vijay have been found valid during scrutiny, Vidhan Sabha Secretary and Returning Officer Mahesh Chandra said.

As no other candidate has filed nomination papers, the announcement of Vijay's election to the Upper House is just a formality now. Vijay is BJP's national spokesman.

Chandra, however, said the formal declaration of Vijay's election would be made on June 10 only after the last date of withdrawal of names passes off.

Vijay, former Editor of RSS mouthpiece Panchajanya, had filed his nomination papers yesterday in the presence of most of the senior party leaders from the state including Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank and former chief ministers B C Khanduri and Bhagat Singh Koshiyari.
