She presented her papers in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, BJP Chairman JP Nada and a number of other BJP leaders. Prime Minister Modi handed over Murmu’s nomination papers to Officer-in-Charge PC Mody.

After submitting her candidacy papers, Mormo contacted opposition leaders Sonia Gandhi, Sharad Pawar, and Mamata Banerjee, asking for support for her candidacy, according to news agency PTI.

the day before submitting her candidacy, mormo met Prime Minister Modi, Shah and Singh Wendh in the national capital. In a brief statement to the media on the same day, Mormo said, “I thank everyone and seek cooperation from everyone in the presidential election. I will meet with all voters (legislators) and ask for their support before July 18.”

From the Santal community in Odisha, the 64-year-old was named as the presidential candidate for the BJP-led NDA on Tuesday night, hours after former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha was announced as the joint candidate of major opposition parties including the Congress, the Transitional Military Council and the NCP.

Mormo’s election is almost certain Given that the numbers are heavily stacked in favor of the ruling National Democratic Rally. Her candidacy, which was announced by Neda after a meeting of the party’s board of directors, seemed to put some opposition parties in place, notably the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), which derives its electoral strength from the votes of the tribes.

On the other hand, former Union Minister and Trinamool Congress leader Yashwant Sinha has been chosen as a joint candidate for the opposition. His candidacy was announced after NCP Chairman Sharad Pawar, NCP Chairman Farooq Abdullah and former West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi rejected the joint opposition’s request to be the presidential candidate.

The election of the office of the President of India is scheduled for July 18, and the votes, if necessary, will be counted on July 21.
