Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

NEW DELHI,09/08/18: The government had an easy victory in the election for the post of the Rajya Sabha deputy chairman, as the opposition came up short in a contest that was seen as a test for its unity in the run-up to the 2019 national election. The government had 125 votes against opposition's 105 in a house with a majority mark of 119. In the gripping build-up over the last few days, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah worked the phones and won over fence-sitters like Naveen Patnaik. 

The opposition votes fell below the expected 110 as five lawmakers - two from the DMK and one from Trinamool Congress - and the YSR Congress stayed out. 

Notably yesterday late evening Odisha Chief Minister announced his support to NDA Govt to scribes  after arriving at Bhubaneswar  from his Mumbai trip. 

Over the last two days, BJP chief Amit Shah had also diligently worked the phones, managing to get the support of miffed allies Akali Dal and Shiv Sena, who initially decided to abstain.
