NEW DELHI: Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma acknowledged that opposition’s Vice-Presidential candidate Margaret Alva had reached out to him for his support but he told her he had no role to play in the elections as he was not part of the electoral college. As part of her campaign, Alva also spoke to CMs of Karnataka and Delhi.
“Smt Margaret Alva spoke to me this morning. I politely told her that I’m not a member of the electoral college. As such I have no role in the election of Vice-President of India,” said Sarma in reply to Congress spokesperson Jairam Ramesh’s tweet.
Alva took charge of her campaign office at 1, Pt Ravi Shankar Shukla Lane Sunday.
“’Smt. @alva_margaret took charge of her campaign office at 1, Pt Ravi Shankar Shukla Lane today. She spoke to CM Assam, CM Karnataka, & CM Delhi as part of her Vice-Presidential campaign,” Congress spokesperson Jairam Ramesh said on Twitter.
Alva on Saturday had met Kejriwal and sought his support for her candidature. Alva also spoke to BJP’s Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka. Only elected members of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha are part of the electoral college of the Vice-Presidential polls. Therefore, chief ministers have no direct role in the polls.
