Gandhi requested the Parliamentarians to extend their support in his favour during the Vice Presidential election on August 5.

Gandhi after having discussions with the BJD MPs on the upcoming Vice Presidential election at  Mahtab’s residence here, will have his lunch as per the schedule.

The ruling BJD had asked its MPs to remain present during the meeting with Gandhi at New Delhi on Tuesday and to pledge their support for the UPA’s VP candidate.

While on one hand the BJD had pledged its support for NDA Presidential nominee Ram Nath Kovind in the recently concluded Presidential poll but this time the regional party decided to support the opposition’s pick by announcing to support Gopalkrishna Gandhi.

Earlier BJD president and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had declared about his party’s support to Gandhi who was unanimously selected by the UPA against the ruling NDA’s nominee Venkaiah Naidu.
