Srinagar: The ruling BJP became the single largest party in Rajya Sabha when it won 12 seats in elections to the Upper House, including an extra seat in Uttar Pradesh where it foiled the bid by the BSP-SP-Congress combine amid high drama and cross-voting allegations.
According to a report published by the Indian Express, this brought to an end biennial elections to 58 seats in Rajya Sabha. The BJP appeared to have gained 10 more seats in the Upper House because it was all set to bag 27 seats — as against 17 of its members retiring from the seats that went to polls.
