The BJP-led NDA has announced the name of its candidate for the post of President. Once again taking a shocking decision, unknown face Dropadi Murmu has been fielded in the presidential election. Earlier in the day, the opposition had announced former Union minister Yashwant Sinha as its President, while the BJP had declared Dropadi Murmu as its candidate. The decision was taken in the Parliamentary Board meeting held at the BJP Headquarters in Delhi. Apart from PM Modi, party President JP Nadda, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Nitin Gadkari and many other leaders were present in the meeting.
BJP has selected a tribal face for the post of President. Dropadi Murmu is the former Governor of Jharkhand. According to the information, the NDA constituent Biju Janata Dal at the Center has also agreed on the name of Dropadi Murmu. If she wins the election, she will be the country’s first tribal president. Experts say that BJP is focusing on the tribal community in view of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh elections. In addition it is a different kind of selection because till now no tribal in the country had become president. If a woman tribal becomes president, BJP can also get electoral advantage.
