Bhubaneswar: Opposition parties’ Vice-Presidential nominee Gopalkrishan Gandhi called on BJD MPs in New Delhi today.
For this purpose, the MPs belonging to the ruling party of Odisha gathered at Legislature Party Leader Bhartruhari Mahtab’s residence in the national capital.
“It is our party’s decision to provide support the candidature of Gopalkurshna Gandhi. We have come here to meet him,” said Rajya Sabha MP Anubhab Mohanty, who is also an popular Odia film star.
Similarly, Sambalpur LS MP Nagendra Pradhan said, “We are happy that we have been asked to support a worthiest candidate for the coveted Vice-President post. He is a diplomat, a former Governor, a noted personality, a friend of our leader Naveen Patnaik and, after all, a grandson of Mahatma Gandhi.”
It may be noted that BJD supremo and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has announced that his party MPs would support the candidature of Gandhi. The election to the post will be held on August 5. His lone rival candidate is Venkaiah Naidu, who has been filed by the ruling NDA. Naidu is expected to win the election in view of more MPs in his side.
