The party has fielded Rane from Maharashtra, Jain and Rao from Uttar Pradesh, Pandey from Chhattisgarh and Baluni from Uttarakhand, according to a party statement.

Sources in the state BJP said they are not certain about the support of one ally, Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party, which has four MLAs.

Mayawati declared last week that the BSP would support the Samajwadi Party candidates in the Phulpur and Gorakhpur Lok Sabha by-elections on March 11 and in return, the Samajwadis would transfer their spare votes to Ambedkar in the Rajya Sabha polls.

Among those on Sunday's list are Madan Lal Saini, a former leader of the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, from Rajasthan and Ashok Bajpai, Vijaypal Singh Tomar, Kamat Kardam and Sakaldeep Rajbhar and Harnath Singh Yadav from UP.

Ajay Pratap Singh and Kailash Soni are candidates from Madhya Pradesh. The BJP has announced a list of 18 candidates while the Congress came up with a list of 10. Stalwarts like former union minister Sushilkumar Shinde, Milind Deora and Rajiv Shukla were in race.

Bose claimed that the Left Front was forced to name CPI-M leader Rabin Deb as their candidate for the fifth Rajya Sabha seat in the state. He was elected to the Rajya Sabha in June 2009 and was against re-elected in 2010.

Tribal leader Sameer Uranv is a candidate from Jharkhand.

The opposition YSR Congress, which has 44 MLAs, has the strength to win the third seat. "His most recent and biggest contribution to Bengaluru is the famous "Steel Flyover Beda" campaign in the city which ultimately forced the ruling Congress party to back off from the project".

Five Rajya Sabha members from the state of MP will complete their terms in April this year. The Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) has announced the names of party's general secretary J Santosh Kumar, B Lingaiah Yadav and B Prakash in Telangana. An alliance for Rajya Sabha polls is likely to be favourable to mount a challenge to the NDA in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The Congress has named Babu Prasad as the UDF opposition candidate from Kerala. Both Muralidharan and Natesan belong to Ezhava community.
