NEW DELHI: Congress president Sonia Gandhi today cast her vote in the vice presidential election. She was accompanied by Gopalkrishna Gandhi, the joint opposition candidate for the polls.
Unlike NDA's candidate Venkaiah Naidu, who is a member of the Rajya Sabha, Gopalkrishna is not a member of either of House of Parliament, and hence cannot vote in the election.
He is being supported by 19 parties, including the JDU and the AAP.
Ghulam Nabi Azad, the Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, his deputy in the Upper House, Anand Sharma, Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, were also present.
With numbers favouring Naidu, his victory appears to be certain.
