For campaigning and seeking support from the electoral collage that has legislators and MPs from Telangana, Draupadi Murmu, who was elected as the Presidential candidate by the NDA-led BJP, will reach Hyderabad on July 12. As per the BJP sources, she will stay in the city for a day and will be appealing for support for her candidature.
Due to the one-day national mourning for former Japanese premier Shinzo Abe, Murmu’s visit to Sikkim yesterday to meet SKM and BJP lawmakers in the state was delayed.
Shivpal Yadav, who is the socialist leader, has committed to vote for Draupadi Murmu, and denounced SP chief Akhilesh Yadav’s political imperfection for allies leaving him.
Meanwhile, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) has extended its support to the ex-Union Minister Yashwant Sinha, who is now a competent candidate opposite Draupadi Murmu for Presidential elections.
