RS Poll: Cong, Opp. yet to finalise candidates

Despite hectic political confabulation, the ruling Congress and the opposition parties have yet to finalise candidates for the upcoming Rajya Sabha polls for 2 seats from Assam. The last date for filing of nomination falls on Tuesday for the poll slated for March 26. The opposition lacks consensus on candidate. AGP seeks BJP support to field it's own candidate. The saffron party pins hope on AGP support citing an old pact. The impasse would be over by Monday.
