Mayawati has announced her support for the NDA candidate Jagdeep Dhankhar for the Vice Presidential election. Along with that, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) has decided to support the opposition candidate Margaret Alva. West Bengal Governor Dhankhar is pitted against opposition candidate Margaret Alva in this election to be held on August 6. After the announcement of the BSP supremo, where Dhankhar's claim has become stronger, with the support of JMM, Margaret's situation has improved a bit.
However, still, some parties have not opened their cards. Why did Mayawati support Dhankhar only? Why not Margaret Alva? How many parties have got the support of both the candidates so far? Why did JMM, which stood with the NDA candidate in the Presidential election, support the opposition in the Vice Presidential election
Mayawati announced her support for Dhankhar in the Vice Presidential election by tweeting. He wrote, 'It is well known that due to the lack of consensus between the power and the opposition in the election for the highest Presidential post of the country, the election was finally held for it. Now due to the same situation, the election for the post of Vice President is also going to be held on 6th August. BSP has also decided to support Jagdeep Dhankhar in the election for the post of Vice President keeping in mind the wider public interest and its movement. I am also announcing this formally today.
Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, the ruling party of Jharkhand, supported the NDA candidate Draupadi Murmu for the presidential election. All the MLAs and MPs of JMM had cast their vote for Murmu. But in the Vice Presidential election, he supported the opposition candidate Margaret Alva instead of the NDA. To understand this, we Spoke to Ajay. JMM was compelled to support Draupadi Murmu in the presidential election, he said. JMM does politics on the issues of tribal people. Murmu comes from a tribal society. In such a situation, if Hemant Soren did not support Murmu, he would have been called anti-tribal.
