Aam Aadmi Party to support Meira Kumar in July 17 Presidential election

"The Political Affairs Committee (PAC) headed by (Delhi) Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has made a decision to support the united opposition candidate Meira Kumar", party leader Sanjay Singh said here.

Mr. Singh said the AAP was also backing Ms. Kumar because the Opposition had a major role to play in the country's politics in the present circumstances.

Bhubaneswar: The 17-party joint opposition UPA Presidential candidate Meira Kumar will arrive in the state capital on Saturday on her campaign trail.

Unusual it may sound though, leader of opposition and Congress MLA Narasingha Mishra and another MLA Taraprasad Bahinipati told the media that they had no information about Meira Kumar's visit.

"We believe that a time should not have come for voting for a crucial post like the president". A bureaucrat-turned-politician, Kumar said that the forthcoming presidential election were not just the contest between two individuals but a clash of two different ideologies.

Hamilton insists best preparation was to miss London event
Hamilton uploaded a short video on his official Twitter account on Tuesday in which he appeared to be partying with friends. Back in March, I wrote that his performance in Australia pointed to a driver that was going to be a factor this year.

"Nevertheless, election is taking place to choose the president". The AAP had already ruled out support to NDA's candidate Ram Nath Kovind.

Kumar, who was here to garner the support of opposition parties SP, BSP and Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) among others, alleged that the secular ideology of the country was being continuously attacked over the last few years.

An AAP leader, who did not want to be named, said the party was "fine" with keeping a distance from the Congress.

The four-year-old party has 85 MLAs and four MPs, which translate into around 9,000 votes in the electoral college for the presidential election.
