Neeraj Shekhar, son of former prime minister Chandra Shekhar, was on Monday elected unopposed to the Rajya Sabha from Uttar Pradesh, a senior official declared here
No other nomination had been filed for the lone Rajya Sabha seat from UP for which bypoll was held.
Shekhar had filed his nomination papers on August 14 as Bharatiya Janata Party candidate in the presence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and party state chief Swatantra Dev Singh.
Monday was the last day for withdrawal of nomination.
The bypoll was necessitated due to Shekhar’s resignation from the membership of the Rajya Sabha and the Samajwadi Party. He later joined the BJP.
The term of the seat ends on November 25, 2020.
UP sends 31 members to the Rajya Sabha.
