OPCC hope for cross voting

Bhubaneswar27/6/17′: Criticizing the Chief Minister for BJD’s support to NDA Presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind, Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) president Prasad Harichandan said the decision was taken for ‘self defence’ and not to protect the interest of Odisha.


Harichandan said. No doubt, the NDA Presidential candidate is a Dalit, but Opposition candidate Meira Kumar is also a Dalit woman, Harichandan said and called upon the BJD and BJP MLAs to vote for her as there is no whip in Presidential election.

Harichandan requested all the 147 MLAs in Odisha Assembly to vote for Meira Kumar and requested BJD to reconsider its decision to support Kovind.
