Delhi:
Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, who had pledged
his support to UPA Presidential hopeful Pranab Mukherjee, on Thursday
almost voted for opposition candidate PA Sangma but realised his mistake
in time and quickly rectified it.




Sources present near the election booth in Room No.63 of Parliament House
said Mulayam Singh put a tick against Sangma's name before casting his
ballot.




"However, he quickly realised the mistake, tore the paper and sought a new
ballot paper. He was allowed to use a fresh ballot paper," an official
said.




The SP leader then cast his ballot in favour of Mukherjee.
