Sanjay Singh said the AAP was backing Meira Kumar since the opposition had a huge role to play in the country in the present circumstances.

On supporting Gopalkrishna Gandhi, the opposition's candidate for the vice presidential poll, Ashutosh said the PAC will discuss the issue later.

Senior AAP leader H.S. Phoolka, a leading campaigner for the rights of the victims of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, on Saturday chose to break ranks with the party and not vote for Congress-led opposition candidate Meira Kumar in the President's election on Monday. "Hence, the opposition has made the presidential poll a fight for ideology to uphold the secular fabric of the country, so that the poor, oppressed and those from the weaker sections feel that their voice is reaching the highest constitutional post", she said. "In such a scenario, the Aam Aadmi Party supports the joint opposition candidate", Singh said. Voting is scheduled for July 17.
