Voting for the six Rajya Sabha seats in Maharashtra began on Friday morning at the Vidhan Bhavan, the state legislature complex. The polling process commenced at 9 am, and the results will be declared in the evening. There are a total of seven candidates in the fray for six seats. While the BJP has fielded Union Minister Piyush Goyal, former state minister Anil Bonde and former MP Dhananjay Mahadik, the Shiv Sena has given the opportunity to MP Sanjay Raut and Sanjay Pawar.
