The process of voting for the Presidential election is underway. Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav has reached the assembly for voting. The process of voting for the Presidential election has started from 10:00 am. The process of voting is going on inside the polling station set up in the library located in the Bihar Legislative Assembly. MLAs and many ministers of the state government are voting by reaching the house today. Apart from Tejashwi Yadav, other RJD MLAs have also reached the assembly.
not having the right to vote
Both the Deputy CMs of Bihar have also reached to cast their votes in the assembly, while Chief Minister Nitish Kumar does not have the right to vote in the presidential election. So he is away from the process of voting. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is a member of the Legislative Council, not of the Bihar Legislative Assembly and the members of the Legislative Council do not have the right to vote in the Presidential elections. That is why many ministers will also not vote in the presidential election today.
BJP MLA arrived lying on the stretcher
BJP MLA Mithilesh Kumar has been brought on a stretcher for voting. Mithilesh Kumar is a BJP MLA from Sitamarhi. He had an accident last month. Mithilesh Kumar, who was badly injured in a road accident, is already in good health, but at the moment he is unable to walk, but if it was about the Presidential election, the democracy has given the BJP MLA the right to choose the first citizen of the country. He didn't want to leave. This was the reason that lying on the stretcher, he reached the assembly and with the help of his colleagues, he reached the polling station and cast his vote.
voting is very important
The BJP MLA has said after voting that Draupadi Murmu comes from the section of the society and the way the Bharatiya Janata Party has made her a candidate. In such a situation, voting becomes extremely important. Democracy has given the exercise of franchise in the presidential election to the elected representatives of the people. Apart from MPs, MLAs have this right and in such a situation I did not want to be deprived of my right. This is the reason that despite the accident, he has reached the assembly and cast his vote.
