Sampathiya Uikey, the new members of Rajya Sabha from Madhya Pradesh, has made history for the BJP by ending the Congress' 65-year run as the Rajya Sabha's biggest party. The BJP now has 58 members and the Congress has 57, though the BJP-led government is still short of a majority in the 245-seat Upper House of Parliament. Responding to a question, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that support base is increasing across the country for BJP. He stated that the BJP is in power in more states.
