For­mer Prime Min­is­ter Man­mo­han Singh will file his nom­i­na­tion pa­pers for the by­poll to the Ra­jya Sabha from Ra­jasthan.

“The party has de­cided to nom­i­nate for­mer PM Man­mo­han Singh from the State and he will be fil­ing four sets of nom­i­na­tions here on Tues­day,” Ra­jasthan Deputy Chief Min­is­ter and State Congress president Sachin Pi­lot said.

The seat fell va­cant af­ter the death of BJP’s Ra­jya Sabha MP Madan Lal Saini in June. Ra­jasthan has 10 Ra­jya Sabha seats.

The Congress has the ma­jor­ity in the State assem­bly and Singh (86) is likely to win the by-poll.

Vet­eran Congress leader Man­mo­han Singh was a mem­ber of the Up­per House of Par­lia­ment from As­sam for al­most three decades.
