IS CROSS VOTING IN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION HIGHLIGHTING A DIVISION INSIDE CONGRESS PARTY AS CLAIMED BY BJP ?

Asserting that the cross-voting in the recently concluded Presidential election shows lack of unity in the Congress party, the BJP on Friday said that all political leaders who wished for the better of the nation, have voted for President-elect Ram Nath Kovind. BJP leader Vishwas Sarang said large-scale cross-voting exposed the vulnerability of the opposition camp. “I had already told this in advance that let the results come, and the truth of unity in the Congress will come out in open. All the leaders who love this nation have voted for Kovindji,” he told ANI. Announcing the results, Lok Sabha Secretary General and returning officer Anoop Mishra said yesterday that Kovind got 2930 votes valued 7, 02,044 and Meira Kumar got 1844 votes valued 3, 67,314. Reportedly, approximately 100 MLAs and MPs cross-voted in favour of Kovind in the president polls conducted on July 17 across the nation.  Kovind’s overall vote value was 661 more than the assured value of 701,382, comprising lawmakers from the NDA and some opposition parties. In contrast, Kumar’s total vote value stood at 367,314  Rediff.com : 21st. July,17
