New Delhi: NDA's Vice Presidential candidate M. Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday said he was "a non-party man" and that majority of the parties supported his candidature.

Naidu said he was not contesting against anybody -- individual or party. "I am contesting for the post of Vice President."

The 68-year-old said he was known to all members of the Parliament and this was the reason that he did not campaign.
