New Delhi: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has said today that BJD will take the decision to support Presidential candidate only after viewing the list of candidates. The Chief Minister is in New Delhi for a five day long visit.
During the last Presidential elections, BJD had chosen PA Sangma as its candidate. The NDA that was in the Opposition then supported BJD’s candidate Sangma. However, UPA candidate Pranab Mukherjee had won the election.
This year the elections for President will begin from May and end by July. BJD has chosen its equidistant policy against both BJP and Congress now. It waits to be seen finally who BJD will show its support to once the candidates list is out.
