Bhubaneswar, Aug 5: The ruling BJD in Odisha announced that it would abstain from voting in the vice-presidential election scheduled to be held on Aug 7.

The regional party which was first to name PA Sangma as its candidate for the presidential poll, has 21 MPs, 14 in Lok Sabha and seven in Rajya Sabha. Though the BJD strongly backed Sangma by projecting him as a prominent tribal and minority leader, the regional outfit had delayed its decision with regard to the vice-presidential poll.
