BJP has also planned victory marches or demonstrations at state levels after the announcement of the results.
In Odisha’s Rairangpur, which is the hometown of Ms Murmu, residents are prepared to show the victory demonstrations, with 20,000 sweets and tribal dance.
NDA’s choice Ms Murmu can be seen as a calculated move to win the support from non-allied parties like “Naveen Patnaik’s Biju Janata Dal and the Jaganmohan Reddy’s YSR Congress” and to strike the opponent.
Droupadi Murmu, a candidate for the presidential election who was also a former Governor of Jharkhand, has support from 44 parties and former Union minister Yashwant Sinha has support from 34. However, many are discreetly supporting Ms Murmu.
The sorting process will be used to count the votes in which the votes of MPs and MLAs will be separated. Each MP’s vote has a benchmarked value of 700. On the other hand, the values of MLAs from different states vary.
The candidate getting the most votes will not be the winner of this competition. But the candidate getting more votes than a specific quota will be the winner. “The quota is determined by adding the votes polled for each candidate, dividing the sum by two and adding ‘1’ to it.”
After winning today India’s 15th President will be taking oath on July 25.
