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
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.
