India set to get new First Citizen

New Delhi, Jul 17 (UNI) Lawmakers all over India today made a beeline to polling stations to choose the 14th President of the nation. Legislators in Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Bihar showed keen enthusiasm. Ruling National Democratic Alliance nominee Ram Nath Kovind, a former Rajya Sabha member from UP and an ex-Bihar Governor, is pitted against Opposition's Meira Kumar, a former diplomat-turned-senior politician. July 20 was set for the counting of votes. The term of Mr Pranab Mukherjee expires on July 24 and a new President has to take over by July 25. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Sonia Gandhi, party vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Bharatiya Janata Party patriarch Lal Krishna Advani were among the early voters. National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah also cast his vote in Parliament. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said MLAs should heed their conscience while casting their votes. Holding an umbrella to fend off the rain, Mr Kejriwal exercised his right to franchise in room number 35 of the Delhi Assembly, the venue of the election. "MLAs should use their conscience in casting votes. In democracy, one who has the number wins. We are supporting Meira Kumar," he told reporters. Mr Kejriwal, his Cabinet colleague Manish Sisodia, Leader of the Opposition Vijendra Gupta and rebel Aam Aadmi Party MLA Kapil Mishra were among the early voters. In first two hours, 15 out of 69 MLAs, voted. More UNI Team-AE RP1800
