RS Deputy chairman election: BJP's  ally SAD likely to abstain from voting

 Unhappy with the chosen candidate for the Rajya Sabha Deputy chairman Election, Bharatiya Janta Party ally Shiromani Akali Dal is likely to abstain from the voting.

As per sources, the decision was taken at a meeting of SAD leaders at the residence of its President Sukhbir Badal.

The party has three lawmakers in the upper house, including Naresh Gujral, whose name was also in contention.

Though the BJP-led NDA is yet to make any formal announcement, sources said that JD(U) MP Harivansh Narayan Singh, is likely to be their choice for the post.

The Rajya Sabha election will be held at 11 am on August 9.
