Ram Nath Kovind to campaign in Hyderabad on Tuesday

Opposition nominee for the presidential election Meira Kumar says she has the support of a number of parties and also a large number of countrymen

Opposition nominee for the presidential election Meira Kumar says she has the support of a number of parties and also a large number of countrymen

The Congress has been urging the TRS to reconsider its decision and vote for Meira Kumar given the role she played as then Speaker of the Lok Sabha in the formation of a separate Telangana state. However, TMC MLAs here denied the allegation and termed the announcement of Mr Chatterjee as "unfortunate and undemocratic". "Several MLAs from different states have also come forward offering their support to the NDA candidate", a BJP leader said. "She undemocratically and unilaterally breaks relations with the five party MLAs in Tripura today (Monday)", party's Tripura unit leader Sudip Roy Barman told reporters in Agartala. "Maybe she remains very busy and has no time to speak to us".

Trinamool Congress legislators in Tripura yesterday chose to vote in favor of Kovind instead of Kumar saying that they would not like to vote for someone who is supported by CPI-M. We have extended our support to Congress candidate Meira Kumar.

"If Mamata Banerjee does not change her stand on support to Meira Kumar, TMC functionaries (in Tripura) will discuss the situation on Wednesday and decide the future course of action", he said.

But the TMC has begun coming closer to the CPI-M, a move which became evident after Mamata Banerjee called up Sitaram Yechuri on the issue of demonetization, he alleged. She will also garland a statue of her father late Jagjivan Ram and interact with MPs, MLAs and MLCs, Left party leaders. Another Congress MLA quit and joined CPI (M). However, the decision came in media only and none of the MLA was informed either verbally or written so far. "We have got tremendously positive response".

Union urban development, housing and urban poverty alleviation minister, M Venkaiah Naidu, on Sunday expressed confidence that the NDA presidential candidate, Ram Nath Kovind, will win as this election for president is being fought not on the basis of caste but on the candidate's calibre, conduct, and commitment."The central point of this presidential election is the individual's efficiency, background, and commitment to the Constitution". Both the TMC and CPI (M), considered arch-rivals in West Bengal politics, are part of the Opposition bloc, which faced a jolt when the Nitish Kumar-led JD (U) chose to back the NDA nominee.
