Ram Nath Kovind win in president poll was made stronger by cross-voting from states including Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh


It was not just members of NDA who voted for presidential election Ram Nath Kovind. Cross-voting has been reported from West Bengal, Maharashtra, Goa, New Delhi, UttarPradesh, Assam, and also from Gujarat and Rajasthan, where Assembly elections are due later. Although some of the cross-voting was in support of opposite president nominee Meira Kumar, most of helped Ram Nath Kovind.

CM Vijay Rupani claimed 11 MLAs from the opposite party voted in Ram Nath Kovind’s support in addition to the BJP’s 121. In the 182 members of House, the BJP has 121 MLAs, Congress 57, NCP two, Janata Dal (U) and the Gujarat Parivartan Party (GPP) from every one.

In West Bengal, the ruling Trinamool Congress and the Opposition Congress and Communist Party of India kept themselves arranged in a blame-game over cross voting, with the Opposite accusing the Mamata’s government of covertly helping the Bharatiya Janata Party.
