Presidential Polls: BJP Reported To Hold Crucial Meet For Its Presidential Nomination


With the last date for nomination 29th this month, BJP today to hold a parliamentary board meeting to decide the candidate.

New Delhi: As the final date looms for the ruling BJP-led-NDA and its silent oppositions to nominate its respective presidential candidate, BJP today broke the silence with the decision to hold a parliamentary board meeting to discuss candidates.

The meeting will include Prime Minister Narendra Modi, top MPs from the office and the 14-member executive team set up to oversee the election activities.

The ruling party presently in the office will strategize to finalize their picks for the presidential office today. The coalition that currently holds 49% of the electoral college will pull all stops to muster to the 50% mark on battle day.

BJP President JP Nadda and Union Minister Rajnath Singh have been reported as the principal directors that will be entrusted with the overall co-ordination with NDA, UPA allies and other non-NDA, non-UPA allies to harvest more support from the electoral college.

The executive team of senior MPs and leaders from the party will meet with the PM after the board meeting to discuss the available list of candidates. The board may meet again to finalize their options after studying the numbers.

Oppositions on loose soil?

Reports today said that TMC leader and Bengal MP Mamata Banerjee will not be in attendance for today’s opposition meeting. Abhishek Banerjee, TMC leader, will likely be in attendance on her behalf.

While leaders, Sharad Pawar, Farooq Abdullah, and Gopal Krishna Gandhi have turned down the request to represent the opposition on battle day, the parties still remain in the dark as no decision has been finalized.

ANI reported that 17 opposition leaders are set to meet today with Sharad Pawar to finalize the oppositions’ decision.
