She will also speak with numerous top leaders before starting a national push to get support from various political parties.
The 64-year-old leader from Odisha will be the first tribal person and second woman to hold the office of President of India if elected, which has a good chance given that Ms. Murmu, already has the backing of the majority of the electoral college, as reported by PTI.
On July 18, there will be a presidential election, and on July 21, the results will be tallied. Nominations must be submitted by June 29. The electoral college, which consists of MPs from both Houses of Parliament and MLAs from every state, including the Union Territories of Delhi and Puducherry, elects the president.
Former Union minister Yashwant Sinha is the joint candidate of the opposition for the seat.
