Rajya Sabha Results Soon: In Karnataka, at least one Janata Dal (Secular) MLA K Srinivasa Gowda said he voted for the Congress “because he loved it”. Also, there is uncertainty about one more vote. JDS Chief HD Kumaraswamy alleged “horse-trading” and said, “30 out of 32 stood with us.”

In Rajasthan too, the ruling Congress got two votes from the BJP. The third MLA’s vote was objected to, further pushing the BJP’s prospects.

In Maharashtra, where there is a tough fight for the sixth seat, there are 28 MLAs from smaller parties and independent heads. The ruling coalition is in trouble after the bail pleas of two MLAs Nawab Malik and Anil Deshmukh were rejected.

The opposition Congress is playing a game of defense in Haryana, where the vote of one of its MLAs was reportedly declared invalid while independent MLAs voted for the ruling BJP.

In one of the two seats in Haryana, the BJP has fielded former minister Krishan Lal Panwar, former Union minister Ajay Maken being the Congress candidate. Media businessman Karthikeya Sharma is contesting as an independent.
