TRS decides to stay away from Presidential Elections

Says Congress party deceived them

Hyderabad, July 18, 2007

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) on Wednesday announced its decision to stay away from the Presidential Elections on Thursday saying that the Congress party has deceived the people by not keeping its promise of creating a separate Telangana. TRS secretary V Prakash said that it would not support NDA candidate Bhairon Singh Shekhavat either as he was from RSS and BJP background. However, the expelled TRS MP A Narendra still remained undecided.

The Telugu Desam Party too deciding to abstain from voting while the MIM already announced to keep away from elections. The Election Commission having made it clear that no whip could be issued to force members to vote for a particular candidate, the parties chose the appeal route. Meanwhile, the Congress Legislature Party already appealed the legislators to be present in the Assembly and vote for the UPA Candidate Pratibha Patil.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State secretary Bandaru Dattatreya criticized the TDP stand saying any act or gesture of staying away from election amounted to boycott. There is a visible relief in the TDP camp with the Election Commission finding no fault in MPs and MLAs abstaining from voting.
