Piyush Goyal, P Chidambaram elected to Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra
MUMBAI: Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal and senior Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram were today elected unopposed to Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra . The deadline for withdrawal of nominations ended this afternoon. As none of the six candidates for as many RS seats pulled out, all were elected to the Upper House, a senior Vidhan Bhawan official said. Others elected are former union minister Praful Patel (NCP), BJP's Vinay
Sahasrabuddhe and Vikas Mahatme and Shiv Sena's Sanjay Raut, who had filed their papers for the biennial elections. Chidambaram did not contest the 2014 Lok Sabha polls while his son Karti had unsuccessfully fought from his native Sivaganga constituency in Tamil Nadu. Meanwhile, 10 candidates, including former Maharashtra Chief Minister Narayan Rane, who had filed nomination papers for 10 seats of the Legislative Council, were also elected unopposed as two others withdrew from the fray.
