In a major development, the Congress today chose to support the BSP candidate Bhimrao Ambedkar for the Rajya Sabha elections scheduled later this month.

The Congress on Saturday announced its support for the candidature of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) nominee Bhim Rao Ambedkar for the Rajya Seat from Uttar Pradesh, polling for which will be held on 23 March.

A meeting of Congress Legislature Party was held here this morning and after consulting the MLAs, we have made a decision to vote for the BSP nominee in the election, CLP leader Ajay Singh Lallu said. With a surplus of 28 votes, the BJP needs the support of four Independents and cross-voting to get its ninth candidate elected.
