Former Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia (49) will visit Madhya Pradesh on Thursday afternoon to file his nomination papers as BJP candidate for the Rajya Sabha election, as per a schedule released by state BJP unit in Bhopal.
The visit happens to be his maiden one to his home state after his joining the Bharatiya Janata Party in Delhi on Wednesday.
Election to Rajya Sabha for three seats in Madhya Pradesh is due on March 26. The last date for filing the nomination papers is March 13.
This is the first time when Scindia is filing his nomination papers for the Rajya Sabha. He has been a member of Lok Sabha for four consecutive terms up to May 2019 when he lost the Lok Sabha election from Guna parliamentary constituency.
