The Rajya Sabha (meaning the "Council of States") is the upper house of the Parliament of India. Telangana elects 7 seats and they are indirectly elected by the state legislators of Telangana. The number of seats allocated to the party, are determined by the number of seats a party possesses during nomination and the party nominates a member to be voted on. After the Bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, members were allotted to Telangana state for the first time by lucky draw.[1]
