Three States CM To Be Present When Ram Nath Kovind Files His Presidential Papers:- When NDA Presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind files his nomination papers, the Chief Ministers of three states, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Telangana are expected to be present. The nomination is scheduled for Friday.
Currently, the Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is in Delhi. On Thursday night, the CM of Tamil Nadu Edappadi Palaniswami is expected to arrive, while the AP CM N. Chandrababu Naidu in the Friday morning. Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) offered their support, soon after the BJP announced Kovind’s name as its candidate. Kovind was the “best selection” for the highest post which also highlighted the commitment of the NDA to downtrodden sections. The TDP is part of the ruling NDA.
After holding consultations with his party colleagues, KCR too offered his support. Both the factions of the AIADMK, mired in controversies, too offered their support. Moreover, Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu spoke to NDA chief ministers and urged them to be present at the time of the filing of nomination by Kovind, says sources.
Besides Prime Minister Narendra Modi, almost the entire council of Union ministers, NDA chief ministers and MPs and MLAs from across the country will be among proposers and seconders of his candidature.
