  • Spl instrument not pens valid for voting

Ruling party sources say they expect enough cross voting in opposition ranks for their candidate to win about 70 per cent of the vote. The contest between it's candidate former Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind and opposition's nominee Meira Kumar is expected be a close one. The Untouchability-free India campaign 2047, initiated by city-based NGO Navsarjan Trust which works for the upliftment of the Dalit community, will be launched at Nani Devti village on Sanand-Bavla road in Ahmedabad on Saturday.

Of the 81 state legislators, 80 have cast their votes in the premises of the Jharkhand assembly where the polling is underway.

Kovind addressed the BJD MLAs and MPs at the Assembly conference hall after the chief minister's brief introduction.

Kovind, the former governor of the eastern state of Bihar, has been under fire by Modi's rivals over his association with a Hindu group that has always been accused of stoking religious hatred against the country's Muslims.

The result will be declared on July 20. They will have to mark their ballot with a specially-designed marker, the Election Commission (EC) said. While Ram Nath Kovind has been able to get the support of non-NDA parties like JD (U) and TRS, Meira Kumar could not convince some of the congress ally like JD (U). "All parties must train their MPs and MLAs to cast their votes so that not a single vote is wasted", he added.

India's prime minister wields executive power, but the president can send back some parliamentary bills for reconsideration and also plays a guiding role in the process of forming governments.

"Only these pens can be used for marking the votes".

With the term of President Pranab Mukherjee expiring on July 24, a special farewell will be given to him in the Parliament on July 23.

Zaidi had also pointed out that political parties can not issue any whip to their MPs and MLAs in the matter of voting.
