Congress MLA Mohammed Moquim cross-votes for Draupadi Murmu

Bhubaneswar: In another embarrassment for the opposition, Odisha Congress MLA Mohammed Moquim revealed that he had voted for NDA’s presidential election candidate Draupadi Murmu. Immediately after exercising his franchise in the Assembly, the legislator from Cuttack-Barabati assembly segment said he went by his “conscience call”. “I am an Odia; I voted in favour of Draupadi Murmu as she is a daughter of Odisha. I went by my conscience. MLAs cannot be prevented from listening to their conscience,” Moquim stated. “People of Odisha will support my move. Murmu’s victory will make me proud,” Moquim explained. Asked if he was under pressure from the ruling BJD, which has also pledged its support to Murmu, Moquim said, “It is my personal decision… there is no other reason.”
