RS polls: 7 BJP nominees file papers; party may surprise with 8th candidate

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 14 February 2024
Seven BJP candidates filed their nomination papers for Rajya Sabha elections. An eighth contender may be fielded, requiring polling on Feb 27. BJP-led NDA has enough strength to send seven nominees. Cross voting may intensify the face-off between BJP and SP. BJP's strength is growing under PM Modi's leadership, and UP has a 'double-engine' government under CM Yogi Adityanath.

Swati Maliwal's First Interview On Assault At Kejriwal's Home | Swati Maliwal Vs AAP Latest

On May 13, AAP Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal recounted being assaulted at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence by his personal assistant, Bibhav Kumar. She reported being slapped, dragged, and hitting her head on a table, while her cries for help went unanswered. Despite Kejriwal being at home during the incident, no one intervened. Kumar has since been arrested and is in police custody. The assault has ignited a political controversy, with the BJP criticising Kejriwal and the AAP's stance on women's safety. The AAP countered by accusing the BJP of protecting individuals like MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and alleging that Maliwal is acting on behalf of the ruling party at the Centre. #SwatiMaliwal #SwatiMaliwalExplosiveInterview #SwatiMaliwalInterview #AAP #ArvindKejriwal #BibhavKumar #AssaultCase #DelhiPolitics #WomensSafety #PoliticalControversy #JusticeForSwati #KejriwalResidence #BJPvsAAP #SupportSwatiMaliwal #DelhiNews #PoliticalScandal ~HT.97~PR.152~ED.102~
