Punjab Tribune Bureau | June 10, 2022 01:51 PM

CHANDIGARH: Voting has begun for 16 Rajya Sabha seats in Haryana, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Maharashtra. There is not much suspense in Maharashtra and Karnataka, while the competition in Haryana and Rajasthan expected to be interesting.

Balraj Kundu, an independent MLA from Haryana, said, “I will not vote for Kartikeya Sharma or any candidate and will be absent. I will stand with the people of Haryana”.

He said that “there is a market running here to buy and sell MLAs. I got many offers, but no one can buy or threaten me.”

Independent MLA Balraj Kundu said that CM Manohar Lal does not want his independent candidate to win. That's why the CM did not ask for votes from me. However, big leaders of BJP have contacted me. I will assess today.

On Thursday, he had said that I do not know independent candidate Kartikeya Sharma. My experience with them is not good. I have nothing to do with Ajay Maken also. He is a big leader of Congress. Rajya Sabha election is a big election. Hooda has also been contacted. Vinod Sharma also came to meet, appeals for all the votes. I have come to Chandigarh to cast my vote.

Rajya Sabha election results may be released by late evening. In all the four states, many big political parties including the Bharatiya Janata Party, Congress are thriving. At the same time, from the political parties to the Election Commission, are very cautious about the voting process. Although elections were announced for 57 seats for the Rajya Sabha elections, 41 candidates were already elected unopposed in Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Bihar, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Telangana, Jharkhand and Uttarakhand.
