Margaret Alva: The country has got its new President. After a few days, the country will get a new Vice President and Rajya Sabha will get a new Chairman. Jagdeep Dhankhar is in the fray from the NDA side for the post of Vice President, while Margaret Alva is the candidate from the opposition side. Both the candidates are gathering support for themselves by meeting the MPs. Meanwhile, the opposition candidate has made a big allegation. Margaret Alva tweeted that all her calls are being diverted after talking to some BJP leaders. She is neither able to make calls nor receive calls.
Promise that I will not call now – Alva
Opposition candidate for Vice President Margaret Alva wrote in a tweet that, “After talking to some friends of BJP, all her phone calls have been diverted and now she is not able to call anyone.” She has tagged MTNL and BSNL for this and urged that, “If her phone is restored, she promises not to call any MP from BJP, TMC or BJD.”
Is KYC still required?
Alva told telecom company Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited on Twitter that his KYC has been suspended and his SIM card will be blocked for 24 hours. He asked the company that do you need my KYC now?
Politics has also started in this matter after these allegations of Margaret Alva. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi on Congress’s allegation that Margaret Alva’s phone was tapped said, “It is a childish allegation and Congress keeps making such allegations. There is no scope for such acts in our government.” “
Let us tell you that for the election of the Vice President, the electoral college consists of 788 members of both the houses of the Parliament. Since all the members of the electoral college are members of both the Houses of Parliament, each Member of Parliament’s vote will have the same value i.e. one. The election will be by means of single transferable vote and by secret ballot, according to the system of proportional representation. In this system, the elector has to mark the preferences against the names of the candidates.
