In addition to Sonia Gandhi, Chunnilal Garasiya from the BJP and Madan Rathore have also secured their positions in the Rajya Sabha without facing any opposition, according to an official announcement. The Assembly Secretary, Mahaveer Prasad Sharma, confirmed the unopposed election on the last day for withdrawing nominations.

The vacant seat in the Rajya Sabha arose after BJP's Kirodi Lal Meena resigned from the House in December, subsequently winning the election as an MLA. The tenure of current Rajya Sabha members, Manmohan Singh from Congress and Bhupendra Yadav from BJP, is set to conclude on April 3.
