BJP’s preparations begin for Presidential election, first meeting with Nitish Kumar

In order to garner maximum votes in the Presidential and Vice Presidential elections, the BJP has started contacting allies.

Union Minister and senior party leader Dharmendra Pradhan held a long meeting with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in this regard on Thursday evening .

This meeting is also important because for some time there has been many speculations about the distance between Nitish and the BJP.

The Indian Express quoted Bihar BJP sources as saying that the talks between Nitish and Pradhan lasted for about two hours. Earlier this information was not given to anyone. Later it was told that the BJP is in touch with allies for the Presidential and Vice Presidential elections.

There are also speculations that by bringing Nitish Kumar in the central role from Bihar, he can be made the next Vice President of the country.

Sources said that Dharmendra Pradhan was given the responsibility of talking to Nitish Kumar after a consultation between Prime Minister Narendra Modi , Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP chief JP Nadda.

After Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United), BJP will now contact Biju Janata Dal and YSR Congress. According to sources, both these parties have indicated to go with the BJP in the Presidential and Vice Presidential elections.

Nitish Kumar has been supporting candidates of opposition parties for two times. In 2012, while in NDA, Nitish Kumar supported Pranab Mukherjee , the candidate of the opposition parties for the post of President .

After this, in 2017, when he was involved in the Grand Alliance with Rashtriya Janata Dal and Congress, he supported the NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind. He did not support Meira Kumar, who contested against Ram Nath Kovind .

The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) can easily win the Presidential and Vice Presidential elections on its own.

The road has become easier for the BJP by winning four states in the recently concluded five-state assembly elections.

Even though this journey is looking easy for the NDA, but the opposition parties have indicated that they will field their joint candidates for these two posts.

Elections for the post of President and Vice President will be held in August this year. At present, Ram Nath Kovind is the 14th President of the country and Venkaiah Naidu is the 13th Vice President. The candidates for the elections have not been announced yet.

In India, the President is elected by the Electoral College (Electoral College). The representation of its members is proportional and their single vote is transferable. Along with this, his second choice also counts.

Elected members of all the Legislative Assemblies, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha MPs cast their votes in the Presidential election. For this reason it is also called indirect election.
