RS polls: Birender Singh, Prabhu to file nominations today

Union Ministers Birender Singh and Suresh Prabhu, who have been nominated by the BJP for bye-elections to two Rajya Sabha seats in Haryana, will file their nominations on Tuesday.

‘Both of us will file our nominations anytime after 11 am,’ Singh said. He said they would reach here from Delhi to file their nominations.

The Election Commission had earlier notified the bye-election to the Council of States from Haryana. As per the schedule, the last date for filing nominations is 25 November. Polling, if required, will be held on 5 December and the results will be declared on the same day. The two Ministers, who were inducted in the Union Cabinet following its expansion on 27 October, are not members of Parliament. They are required to be an MP within six months of being a Minister.

Birender Singh was earlier a Rajya Sabha member of Congress from Haryana but quit his seat to join the BJP ahead of assembly elections in the state.
