In Punjab, senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and former Leader of Opposition in the Assembly H S Phoolka has categorically said that he will not vote for Congress-backed Meira Kumar as supporting her is tantamount to betraying the victims of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Speaking to TOI, MIM legislator from Aurangabad, Imtiaz Jaleel, said, "The Congress chief has spoken to our president, Asaduddin Owaisi, with a request that we vote for the opposition's candidate".

"I respect Meira Kumar ji but will not vote for her as she has been backed by the Congress which continues to shield perpetrators of anti-Sikh riots", Phoolka said.

As the race restarted, Raikkonen was unable to keep up with Hamilton's Mercedes , but Vettel was pressuring Verstappen. Asked if the weekend was a disaster, the German replied: "Well, I think it could've been a little bit better for sure".

He clarified that the party would not have supported Kumar's candidature had the Congress nominated Kumar on its own.

"She is the combined candidate of the opposition parties". It would have been better if the candidate was from other parties in alliance. The Muslim minority dominated party has two MLAs in Maharashtra.

The Party that accounts for 10 votes in total made the decision to support the UPA candidate at a meeting held in the city on Saturday.

By contrast, more than 80 percent of mobile device data is encrypted. "With this technology, the whole system in its entirety is". IBM said the dedicated silicon means cryptographic performance is about 18 times faster than current x86 systems.

The MIM's absence will also help widen the vote-gap between the BJP's Ram Nath Kovind and Meira Kumar in Telangana.

If MIM abstains from the Presidential poll, it may not cause any major damage to Meira Kumar, but it could be a setback to the Congress which is trying to sew up a grand "secular" alliance against the ruling BJP-led NDA coalition.
