    Bharatiya Janata Party’s central election committee on Monday nominated external affairs minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar and Jugalji Thakor for Rajya Sabha seat from Gujarat.
    Jaishankar took reins of the foreign ministry in the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) second term. The NDA came to power with an emphatic win in the Lok Sabha elections that concluded on May 19.
    Earlier on Monday, Jaishankar, a career diplomat and former foreign secretary, formally joined the BJP in the presence of the party’s working president JP Nadda.
    He has never contested elections and is expected to sail through the byelections from the BJP stronghold of Gujarat. Jaishankar, who took oath on May 30, has to be a member of parliament within six months of swearing in.
