BJP names Pabitra Margherita as candidate for Rajya Sabha

New Delhi: The BJP's central leadership has named Pabitra Margherita as the party candidate in the Rajya Sabha elections slated for March 31.

The party issued a list on Friday where the ruling party has not named anybody for the second seat.  

The ruling coalition lacks the numbers to get yet another candidate to get elected smoothly. 

Only a united opposition has the chance for smooth sailing in it.  Opposition parties are having hectic confabulation to ensure their candidate, while Ripun Borah is said to be a strong contender.  Bora and his party are in touch with AIUDF.
