Hyderabad:
The Telugu Desam Party has decided to abstain from voting in the July 19
Presidential election, a statement from party president N Chandrababu
Naidu said.




"The TDP has been fighting the anti-people policies of the Congress for
three decades now. Extending support to Congress nominee Pranab Mukherjee
is not acceptable," Naidu said. Similarly, supporting the candidature of
NDA's PA Sangma, backed by the "communal" BJP, would also be
inappropriate.




"After lengthy deliberations on this in the party, we have decided to stay
away from voting in the Presidential election," the former chief minister
said. The TDP has six MPs in Lok Sabha and five in Rajya Sabha. It has 86
MLAs in Andhra Pradesh but two of them have been siding with Kadapa MP and
YSR Congress chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy.
