The Shiromani Akali Dal today said it would support any candidate put up by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) for the election to the post of deputy chairman Rajya Sabha.
The election will be held tomorrow.

Mr Badal said this after a meeting with BJP chief Amit Shah tonight at the latter's residence.
"The Akali Dal is standing rock solid with the BJP. It would support any candidate the NDA fields for the post," he said.
When asked if there was any move to abstain from voting, as reported by a section of the media, Mr Badal said, "There is no question of abstaining."
