President Election 2022: BSP chief Mayawati supports THIS candidate for presidential polls

President Election 2022: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Saturday said she will support National Democratic Alliance (NDA) candidate Draupadi Murmu in the presidential election.

“We have decided to support Draupadi Murmu, the NDA’s presidential candidate. We have taken this decision neither in support of BJP or NDA nor against opposition but keeping in mind our party and movement,” BSP chief Mayawati said.

“Mamata Banerjee invited only selected parties to a meeting called on June 15 to select an opposition candidate for the presidential election and when Sharad Pawar called a meeting on June 21, BSP was not invited either. This shows their casteist motives.

Meanwhile, opposition candidate for presidential election Yashwant Sinha on Friday sought support from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh for the July 18 elections.

Yashwant Sinha also called Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren and reminded him of the commitment of the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) when he was nominated as the joint opposition candidate for the presidential election.
