Vice President poll today, Easy win for Venkaiah

New Delhi: Voting for Vice Presidential post is today. Just a day before this, the BJP organized a workshop to explain the process of voting for MPs and allies. It is being told that the party leadership made this effort so that the vote can be saved from being bogus. It is reported from sources that the votes of 10 MPs were found to be illegal.

BJP President Amit Shah apologized when such a large number of MPs were found to be wrong. He also asked his MPs to vote with caution. All NDA MPs have been asked to gather outside Parliament Library at 10 in the morning. Despite the recent election of Presidential election, 21 MPs' votes were found to be illegal. It is believed that most of them were of the BJP.

Today's workshop also participated by AIADMK, TRS and YSR Congress’ MPs. In today's workshop, Venkaiah Naidu himself also joined and urged all MPs to vote in their favor. PM Narendra Modi also addressed the MPs and appealed for Naidu's favour.


Naidu is in a very good position among the 787-member effective electoral college of both houses of the Parliament. The NDA has got a clear majority in the Lok Sabha and some political parties in South India also have his support. There are 543 members in the Lok Sabha and 244 in the Rajya Sabha. Two seats are vacant in the Lok Sabha and one in the Rajya Sabha. According to BJP officials, in addition to 81 members of the NDA Rajya Sabha and 338 members of the Lok Sabha, 50 members of AIADMK, 10 from YSR Congress and 14 members of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti will also vote in favor of Naidu in both the Houses.


In this way, with 493 members, Naidu will easily get the required 394 members, the required strength. The BJP is expected to get 500 votes. The grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, former West Bengal Governor and former diplomat Gopalakrishna Gandhi is a candidate for the opposition. They have the support of Congress, Left, Nationalist Congress Party, DMK, Trinamool Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party and National Conference. Janta Dal (U), which has now joined NDA, has also announced support for Gandhi.
