Rajya Sabha Election Results 2024 Highlights: The election results for four seats in Karnataka, 10 in Uttar Pradesh, and one in Himachal Pradesh have been announced. Among these, the Congress secured victory in three seats, while the BJP emerged victorious in one. Notably, one BJP MLA cross-voted, and another abstained from voting. Unfortunately, the JD (S) nominee faced defeat. The successful Congress candidates include Ajay Maken, Syed Naseer Hussain, and GC Chandrasekhar, whereas the winning BJP candidate is Narayana Bandage.

In Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, BJP candidate Harsh Mahajan secured victory, defeating Congress’s Abhishek Manu Singhvi. Reports indicate that six Congress MLAs and three Independent MLAs cross-voted, favoring the BJP in the elections. This development deals a significant blow to the Congress government in the Hill State, given its majority there. The BJP contends that the Congress has been diminished to a minority in the assembly following the Rajya Sabha polls. Meanwhile, Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu stated that 5–6 Congress MLAs have switched sides to the BJP.

In Uttar Pradesh, the BJP secured victory in eight out of the ten Rajya Sabha seats, while the Samajwadi Party (SP) managed to win two seats. This outcome is considered a significant triumph for the BJP, particularly in light of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, as the SP had hoped to win three seats. The fact that the SP lost one of the three anticipated seats suggests the possibility of cross-voting in favor of the BJP.  Rajya Sabha Election Results 2024 Highlights
