The election of Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha is set to take place on Thursday with NDA nominee Harivansh contesting against UPA candidate BK Hariprasad.
Though neither Bharatiya Janta Party, nor Congress is in majority, the numbers hint at favouring NDA, after Biju Janata Dal President and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday declared support for them.
“Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had spoken to me and our party will support the JD(U) candidate in the Rajya Sabha’s deputy chairman election”, Patnaik told reporters on his return from Mumbai.
The BJD will support the JD(U) since the two parties have emerged from the Jay Prakash Narayan movement, while the Congress candidate was the AICC in-charge of Odisha and vitriolic in his statements against the BJD, Patnaik said.
