BJP president J P Nadda and three other candidates of the party, including an OBC leader and a prominent diamond merchant, were declared elected unopposed to the Rajya Sabha from Gujarat on Tuesday.

There were four vacant Rajya Sabha seats in the state and the BJP had fielded as many candidates.

As there were no other candidates in the fray for the Rajya Sabha elections from Gujarat on the vacant seats besides them, Returning Officer Reeta Mehta declared all the four BJP nominees elected unopposed, an official said. Tuesday was the last date of withdrawal of nomination forms.

Apart from Nadda, the three others candidates elected unopposed to the Rajya Sabha were diamond baron Govindbhai Dholakia, BJP leaders Jasvantsinh Parmar and Mayank Nayak.

Though a person named Paresh Mulani had filed his nomination papers on Wednesday, his candidature was rejected during scrutiny, as he did not have support of any MLA, which is mandatory as per rules, said Mehta.

Elections, wherever needed, will be held on February 27.
