RS Dy chairman election: PDP to abstain from voting
The People's Democratic Party (PDP) has decided to abstain from voting in the election to the post of Rajya Sabha deputy chairman.
A keen contest is on the cards tomorrow between NDA nominee Harivansh and joint opposition candidate B K Hariprasad for the post of Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman, with both sides claiming majority support.
The numbers, however, appear stacked in favor of the ruling coalition which claims the support of 126 members in the Upper House, which has an effective strength of 244 MPs.
While Harivansh is a first-time MP of the JD-U, Hariprasad is a three-time parliamentarian of the Congress.
