Sasaram: Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar failed to cast her vote in Delhi as she is busy in Sasaram constituency which witnessed polling on Thursday.

Kumar is registered in the voters` list at her Delhi address of New Friends Colony and since she is now confined to the Sasaram Parliamentary constituency from where she is contesting as a Congress candidate, the Speaker will not be able to cast her vote in the national capital, sources in her election office at Mohania said.

The 69-year-old former diplomat, however, is very much involved in the polling as she is moving around her constituency to keep a watch over any malpratice, they said.
Kumar, seeking a third consecutive term in Lok Sabha, is locked in a triangular contest with BJP`S Cheddi Paswan and IAS-turned politician K P Ramaiah of JD(U).
Kumar`s father and Dalit icon Jagjivan Ram won from this seat eight times between 1952 and 1984.
