The proposal for creation of Rajya Sabha was first put forth in the Montague- Chelmsford reforms of 1918.
The Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) and National Election Watch said the report was based on the analysis of self-sworn affidavits of all 57 MPs who were elected to Rajya Sabha this month.
It was further alleged that the defendants got news circulated on various dates concerning their tweets and allegations which were ex-facie false, concocted, slanderous, scandalous, and derogatory.
The opposition BJP has fielded five candidates, while ruling MVA allies, the Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena, have nominated two candidates each.
Amid a blame game in the party's state unit, MLA from the Faridabad NIT assembly constituency Neeraj Sharma said the Congress should identify the 'black sheep' whose vote was cancelled.
What was interesting in this ballot paper was that the voting mark was not found in the prescribed box but next to Independent candidate Kartikeya Sharma’s name.
Congress leader Kuldeep Bishnoi’s cross-voting wasn’t completely unexpected.
He said Fadnavis pulled off a miracle by drawing all Independents and smaller parties to win a difficult third seat.
Party MLA Shobha Rani violated the party whip by voting for Congress candidate Pramod Tiwari and was suspended and served a notice to reply within seven days.
Shiv Sena candidate Sanjay Pawar secured 33 votes while BJP’s nominee Dhananjay Mahadik got 25 votes but in the second round Mahadik completed the 41 votes quota while Pawar got a total of 39 votes.
Calling himself an associate member of the Nationalist Congress Party, Shinde said he had voted for MVA candidates as per the instructions of the party.
Cross voting in Rajya Sabha polls: Congress expels its Haryana MLA Kuldeep Bishnoi from all party positions
The Haryana Congress has alleged that Bishnoi, an MLA from the Adampur constituency in Hisar, did not vote for the party candidate Ajay Maken.
From among the 57 retiring members, the BJP had 25 of its members and the Congress had seven who will retire by next month and new ones will replace them.
Congress nominee Ajay Maken failed to secure Rajya Sabha berth after one of the party's MLAs, Bishnoi, cross-voted, while the vote of an MLA was declared invalid.
Congress's Haryana MLA and authorised polling agent BB Batra said while the vote of a party MLA was declared invalid, party MLA Kuldeep Bishnoi cross-voted for Sharma, a media baron.
