Delhi Confidential: Playing It Safe

Despite the expected victory of its candidate Droupadi Murmu in the presidential election on Monday, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) directed all its deputies to attend in the national capital on Saturday itself. Party leaders said they did not want to take the risk because there might be some unexpected hurdles at the last minute. Representatives met on Saturday evening and had a training session for them on how to vote. However, in the opposition congress camp, the deputies did not receive any instructions or guidance from the party leadership regarding the presidential election. While there was no communication from the central leadership to the party’s deputies regarding the presidential election, the Kerala congressmen received a letter from BJP Chairman K. Surendran asks for their support for Mormo.
