Publish Date: 10 Jun, 2022 |

In the wake of allegations of horse-trading in the Rajya Sabha elections, Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar announced on Thursday that special observers have been appointed to monitor the process. The entire election process will be documented on video. On Friday, voters will cast ballots for 16 seats in four states: Haryana, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, and Karnataka. The ruling parties and the opposition are engaged in a fierce political battle to win elections in these states.

The battle in Maharashtra has heated up. A special court here denied bail to NCP leaders Anil Deshmukh and Nawab Malik for one day of voting. Both leaders have now appeared before the Supreme Court. Haryana and Rajasthan are also facing stiff competition. In Karnataka, the Congress and JDS are fighting each other. Let us inform you that candidates for 57 Rajya Sabha seats in 11 states were elected unopposed.

Eyes on Maharashtra Politics

The Maharashtra contest has become more interesting. Former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh and Minority Welfare Minister Nawab Malik have petitioned the Supreme Court after the PMLA court denied their voting application. Both leaders, who are currently in judicial custody, want to be allowed to vote in the Rajya Sabha elections on Friday. Haryana will hold elections for two seats. The ruling BJP and JJP, as well as the opposition Congress, have sent MLAs to the resort to protect their respective MLAs from horse-trading.

Resort Politics in Rajasthan

Rajasthan is experiencing a period of political upheaval. The order of the Rajasthan High Court has been challenged in the Supreme Court. The High Court refused to stay the announcement of Rajya Sabha election results pending the outcome of the petition challenging the disqualification of the six MLAs.

Elections for 4 seats of Karnataka

Karnataka is holding elections for four seats. There is constant speculation about which party will win the fourth seat. In the state, all three major parties have candidates. The opposition camp is attempting to divide each other's votes. Top leaders of Congress and the JD(S) are attempting to reach out to each other's MLAs as no formal agreement on extending support has been reached. Both opposition parties take their respective positions here.
