Vote for Odisha’s daughter, Naveen Patnaik’s appeal in support of Draupadi Murmu, BJP’s worries allayed
New Delhi: Another Janata Dal has announced its support to the presidential candidate Draupadi Murmu from the NDA side. He has appealed to all the MLAs and MPs of the state to vote for the daughter of Odisha. He tweeted: “I appeal to all the members of Odisha Legislative Assembly to rise above party lines and support Odisha’s daughter Draupadi Murmu.” Choose to put them in the highest position in the country. Earlier on Tuesday, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik took to Twitter to congratulate Draupadi Murmu on her candidature for the post of President. He tweeted, “I was delighted when PM Modi spoke to me about Draupadi Murmu.” It was a matter of pride for Orissa.
Naveen Patnaik said, “I am sure Draupadi Murmu will be a great example of women empowerment in the country.” The announcement of Draupadi Murmu’s support from the BJD leader has paved the way for NDA’s victory. With BJP’s support, it will be easier for Murmu to win the presidential election. If we talk about the arithmetic of the presidential election, the total value of votes is 10,79,206. To win this election, NDA needs more than half the votes i.e. 5 lakh 40 thousand votes. BJP alone has 4,59,414 votes. Apart from this, the vote value of its ally JDU is 22485 and the vote value of AIADMK is 15816. Thus the total value of NDA votes is 4,97,715.
NDA has only 43 thousand votes. If we talk about BJD, then its vote value is 31686. So the vote value of ruling YSR Congress in Andhra Pradesh is 43,450. He has also indicated support. Apart from this, the opposition is also not one, in which the path will not be difficult for the NDO. Actually, there was talk that BJP’s minority or tribal leader could be given ticket, which would be difficult for any party to oppose.
YSR Congress also indicated support
The YSR Congress has 150 members in the 175-member Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly and 33 in the Legislative Council. YSR has 22 MPs in the Lok Sabha and six in the Rajya Sabha. If he also supports NDA candidate Murmu, then the opposition will not be able to win under any circumstances. The NDA has a vote value of 5,26,420, less than half of the total 10.79 lakh votes. Now that BJD and YSR have also indicated their support for the NDA candidate, Draupadi Murmu has paved the way for him to become the country’s first tribal president.
