Kumar, Gandhi to hold session with non-NDA parties

Opposition's joint vice presidential candidate Gopalkrishna Gandhi with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and other leaders files his nomination paper in Parliament in New Delhi on Tuesday

With Presidential elections just one day away, political parties have begun devising their final strategies.Hyderabad-based All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM), which earlier showed signs of staying neutral, have begun leaning towards the UPA presidential candidate Meira Kumar in the contest for the country's top post. At the same time, MIM do not want to be seen supporting Congress and so the party says it is supporting the candidate of the 16 Opposition Parties. I myself met Gopal Krishna Gandhi, the Opposition's Vice-President candidate and conveyed to him that, in the wake of the current situation it won't be good for us to attend a meeting called by Opposition.

The MIM's absence will also help widen the vote-gap between the BJP's Ram Nath Kovind and Meira Kumar in Telangana. "The person should be the right guardian of the Constitution and its values, and Meira Kumar is the right person", Surjewala told ANI.

He clarified that the party would not have supported Kumar's candidature had the Congress nominated Kumar on its own. MIM has 10 votes.This includes that of Hyderabad parliamentarian and party president, Asaduddin Owaisi.

England to play South Africa in semi-finals
The 29-year-old has 122 Test scalps to his name, but went for 274 runs across two Tests in England back in 2012. Captain Heather Knight top scored with 67 from 88 balls, while Tammy Beaumont supported with 42 from 71.


If MIM abstains from the Presidential poll, it may not cause any major damage to Meira Kumar, but it could be a setback to the Congress which is trying to sew up a grand "secular" alliance against the ruling BJP-led NDA coalition.

The party has seven members in the Telangana Assembly and two in the Maharashtra Assembly.
