PM in Assam to file papers for re-election to Rajya Sabha

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, whose current term in the Upper House ends on June 14, has arrived here to file his nomination papers on Wednesday for re-election to the Rajya Sabha in biennial polls to be held later this month.

Guwahati, May 8 : Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, whose current term in the Upper House ends on June 14, has arrived here to file his nomination papers on Wednesday for re-election to the Rajya Sabha in biennial polls to be held later this month.

Singh is on a two-day visit to Guwahati and will file his nomination papers as a Congress candidate in the office of the State Assembly secretary on Wednesday morning for a fourth term to represent Assam, officials said.

Election to the seat represented by Singh will be held on May 24, when polling for another Rajya Sabha seat held by BJP's Indramoni Bora will also take place.

Notification for the election was issued on Monday. The last date of filing of nominations is May 14 and the papers will be scrutinised on May 15.

The last date for withdrawal of candidature is May 17. Counting of votes will take place on May 24.

Singh, an AICC member from Assam and Punjab, became Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha when he was elected for a third term in 2001.

Two years later, he became prime minister after Congress President Sonia Gandhi declined the post.

Security arrangements are at their peak in the city in the wake of an ULFA bomb attack at Fancy Bazar on Sunday, which injured 19.
