AAP to back Meira Kumar

Earlier, Meira Kumar cancelled her visit to Odisha on July 3 and later Congress leaders informed media that she couldn't board the flight in which she was scheduled to arrive here and the next date of her visit will be decided soon.

New Delhi:The AAP today announced that it would support Meira Kumar, the opposition nominee for the presidential poll, after the latter "appealed" to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to back her candidature. "However, this time also elections are happening and we have take a decision to support Kumar", senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh told reporters.

He said Mr Kejriwal and his team misled the people of Delhi on the pretext that they are opposed to the corruption of the Congress and will punish the party's leader for the corruption whose 300 page charge-sheet is with it.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah July 13 met two senior RSS leaders, Bhaiyyaji Joshi and Krishna Gopal, to discuss the ruling National Democratic Alliance's candidate for the August 5 vice presidential election.




"Nevertheless, election is taking place to choose the president. But in the present circumstances, we prefer a strong and united Opposition", Mr. Singh said. Incidentally, her opponent in the presidential poll, NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind, also hails from Kanpur.

Some opposition parties, including the JD (U), Telangana Rashtra Samithi, the YSR Congress and the Biju Janta Dal, have extended support to Kovind's candidature.

The AAP's vote share accounts for around 9,000 as it has 67 MLAs in Delhi and 20 in Punjab, apart from four MPs from Punjab, which is less than 1% of the total votes in the Presidential election.
