Abstensions and cross voting[edit]

Within the media reports there are a lot of contradicitions and so it is not easy to piece together the exact voting records. For example some article claims that Aadikesavulu of the TDP MP abstained, some claim that he cross-voted. This article says that even the TDP isn't sure what happened. One thing is sure. The figures on our wikipedia article related to the abstensions and cross-voting are dubious. Either this fact should be mentioned or the whole list should be removed until verifiable facts are present.--Shahab (talk) 04:58, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

I think we should just stick to HT, TOI and PTI for this. above all we should take PTI as gospel. the rest are all suspect. ChiragPatnaik (talk) 09:42, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
Wo, very suspect as taking any 1 source as taking any 1 source as gospel. But if something can be backed by multiple sources then we sould accept it IMO. This should also work to get that banner out of there. Lihaas (talk) 09:33, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
