Yashwant Sinha’s appeal on Presidential election

He appealed to the MPs to vote according to their discretion.

New Delhi:

As voting for the presidential election began this morning, opposition presidential candidate Yashwant Sinha urged all political parties to vote for him in the race to become the country’s next president.

Yashwant Sinha said, “This election is very important. I hope all MPs and MLAs will vote in my favor to save democracy.”

Mr. Sinha is pitted against NDA’s presidential candidate Draupadi Murmu in the presidential election.

He appealed to the MPs to vote according to their discretion. “The Constitution provides that the vote will be secret but there will be no party whip which means you have to decide who you want to vote for,” he said.

“I am not just fighting a political battle, but I am also fighting a battle against the government agencies. They have become very powerful and there is a money game involved in it,” he said.

On Sunday, Mr Sinha posted a statement on Twitter urging the support of all MLAs and MPs. He said he stood for the defense of India’s democracy, while Draupadi Murmu “has the support of those who are attacking democracy on a daily basis.”

“I stand for the defense of secularism, which is a preamble pillar of our Constitution. My rival candidate is from a party that has not hidden its resolve to destroy this pillar and establish majority supremacy,” the statement said. “

“I am in favor of encouraging the politics of consensus and cooperation. My rival candidate is supported by a party that practices the politics of conflict and confrontation,” he said.

Bureaucrat-turned-politician Yashwant Sinha held important portfolios such as the Minister of External Affairs and Finance in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government.

Counting of votes will take place on July 21 and the new President will take oath on July 25 as per the schedule announced by the Election Commission.
