the Presidential election that is scheduled to take place on Monday.
“We respect Draupadi Murmu but the party’s decision is to support Yashwant Sinha in the presidential election”, said the senior leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh. This has put an end to the doubt as to whom the AAP will support.
