Bhubaneswar, June 22: The NDA government on Tuesday stamped the name of Odisha’s daughter Draupadi Murmu for the post of presidential candidate in the presidential election. Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik appeals to all the members of the Odisha Legislative Assembly, irrespective of party lines, to unanimously support the election of Odisha’s daughter Draupadi Murmu to the country’s highest office.
On the other hand, ruling NDA’s presidential candidate Draupadi Murmu has said that she is hopeful of getting the support of all the MLAs and MPs of Odisha as she is the soil daughter of Odisha.
Murmu, who became the first tribal governor in Jharkhand, said she was happy and surprised when she learned from TV that she had been chosen as the candidate for the President’s post that she had been nominated for the top post by the NDA. He said that I am surprised and happy too.
As a tribal woman from Odisha’s Mayurbhanj district, I had never thought of becoming a candidate for the top post, Murmu told reporters at his Rairangpur residence on Tuesday.
He said the NDA government’s decision to nominate a tribal woman for the top post is a reflection of the BJP’s slogan of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and Sabka Vishwas. Asked if he can get the support of the ruling BJD in the state, which has over 2.8 per cent votes in the electoral college for the upcoming presidential election, Mr. Murmu said that I hope to get support from all the members and MPs of Odisha Legislative Assembly.
