TRS not to vote in Presidential election

July 18, 2012 21:50 IST

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi has decided to abstain from voting in Thursday's Presidential election, top party sources said on Wednesday.

The sub-regional outfit would not like to support United Progressive Alliance-backed Pranab Mukherjee's candidature due to the alleged indifferent attitude of the Congress-led Government towards the separate Telangana demand, they said.

The TRS, which has two Lok Sabha members and 17 MLAs in Andhra Pradesh Assembly, did not vote in the 2007 Presidential election, too.
