Mr Scindia left the Congress, his party of 18 years, on Tuesday (File)
Jyotiraditya Scindia is among the two candidates named by the BJP for the Rajya Sabha from Madhya Pradesh.
The announcement followed moments after the 49-year-old four-time Lok Sabha MP joined the BJP.
Mr Scindia left the Congress, his party of 18 years, on Tuesday.
One of the reasons for his switch was said to be the promise of a Rajya Sabha nomination by the BJP, something that had proved to be a tough ask for him in the Congress.
