New Delhi: There seems to be more drama unfolding in the Rajya Sabha elections. Reports say that the Congress has asked its Rajya Sabha candidate in West Bengal Abdul Mannan to withdraw his nomination.

Earlier the Trinmaool Congress had already decided not to support the Congress in the Rajya Sabha polls, renominating union minister Mukul Roy and also gave tickets to three journalists.

Reports say that the Congress is not too optimistic about Mannan, who is a former MLA from Champdani in Hooghly district.
