Sonia Calls Meeting to Decide Presidential Candidate

There was a crack in the coalition camp before the crucial meeting of opposition today about the presidential election. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's party said after announcing support to NDA candidate Ramnath Kovind that he will not be present in the meeting today. The opposition camp has not announced any name yet, but the meeting of former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar's Congress President Sonia Gandhi at her residence has given the speculation that she is going ahead in the race.

Sources said that after the announcement of JDU, in the day, a brief discussion was held between senior leaders of Congress and non-NDA parties, how to keep the opposition united. The Congress, who was coordinating the meeting of the Opposition, expressed hope that leaders of all those parties would join the meeting which was attended by the daughter-in-law on May 26 in the afternoon lunch.

Meanwhile, a senior leader of the Left Party said, "Whatever happens, we will contest elections." When asked about the choice of Congress for the election, party spokesman Manish Tewari said that this is a fictional question and the opposition will decide on a joint strategy for the July 17 elections. Tiwari said that a clear answer will be available after the meeting. Naresh Agrawal of SP said that the Opposition parties will jointly decide on any candidate.

In the meantime, some Left leaders mentioned the presence of SP leader Mulayam Singh Yadav in Lucknow today in a program related to Yoga Day which included Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Nitish will support NDA candidate Ramnath Kovind

NDA candidate Ramnath Kovind's victory in the presidential election is now considered convincing. On Tuesday, JDU also gave its support to Kovind after Shiv Sena's support. After the announcement of JDU, the road to BJP has become easier. At the same time, RJD will take a decision on the opposition candidate in the upcoming presidential election. In the party meeting at Nitish Kumar's house, he decided to support NDA Presidential nominee Ramnath Kovind.


JD Spokesperson K. Tyagi said that his party has announced support to NDA candidate Ramnath Kovind. Tyagi said that Ramnath Kovind's job was as good as Governor. He worked peacefully and did not let any dispute during his tenure.
