Draupadi Murmu and Narendra Modi.
July 8, Kathmandu. India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its ally, the NDA, have decided to field Draupadi Murmu as their presidential candidate.
She became the first woman and tribal governor of Jharkhand. After becoming the governor for six years, she had been living in Rayarangpur, her hometown of Odisha.
The NDA meeting in the capital, Delhi, announced her candidacy for the presidency on television in her village, 1,600 kilometers away.
“I am shocked and happy that I have been nominated for the presidency,” she told local media. Celebrating her 64th birthday on June 20, she said that she would work according to the rights given by the constitution.
His name was also mentioned in the 2017 presidential election. But at that time, the NDA had made Ramnath Kobind the president.
This time, the opposition alliance has decided to field former BJP leader Yashwant Sinha as its presidential candidate. Sinha, who is also a former minister, has recently been opposed to the working style of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He is a member of Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress.
India is holding presidential elections on July 18 and nominations have to be registered by June 29. The new president will be elected on July 21.
