Elections will be held for 57 Rajya Sabha seats in 15 states in India today.  

It was reported that in Uttar Pradesh, the BJP's support to an independent candidate has turned the election for 11 seats into a contest. Most impacted is the Congress' one candidate Kapil Sibal, who is now looking to Mayawati's BSP and Ajit Singh's RLD for help. 

In Karnataka, where the Election Commission has refused to cancel the Rajya Sabha polls at the behest of the Janata Dal Secular, it's the Congress that has forced a contest for the four seats by fielding a third candidate.
