On Wednesday evening, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik appealed to all Odisha MLAs to support Murmu’s candidature.

Notably, the Naveen Patnaik-led Biju Janata Dal (BJD) is not an ally of the NDA but is often seen supporting the NDA government on important bills and legislature. He came out openly and supported Murmu’s candidature for the upcoming presidential elections to be held on 18 July.

Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters on Monday, JP Nadda announced Draupadi Murmu as the NDA candidate for the upcoming presidential election.

Nadda also said that more than 20 names were discussed by the BJP parliamentary board and all NDA allies before Murmu was finalized as the candidate for the presidential election.

Draupadi Murmu is all set to become the next President of India and if this happens, she will be the first woman tribal President of India and the second woman President of India since independence.

Former Odisha minister, Draupadi Murmu, is the first presidential candidate from Odisha from a major political party or coalition. She continued to break barriers and was the first woman governor of Jharkhand. She served as the Governor of Jharkhand from 2015 to 2021.

In 2007, the Odisha Legislative Assembly honored him with the ‘Neelkanth Award’ for the best MLA. He served as a junior assistant in the Department of Irrigation and Power between 1979 and 1983. She has held several organizational positions in the BJP and was the Vice President of the State ST Morcha in 1997.
