Murmu likely to file nomination tomorrow
   Date :23-Jun-2022

THE BJP-led National Democratic Alliance’s presidential candidate Draupadi Murmu is likely to file her nomination on June 24, and is expected to be accompanied by its top leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Modi, several Union Ministers and Chief Ministers, and key leaders of some other supporting parties like the Biju Janata Dal will join her during the nomination-filing as a show of support, sources said, adding that the Prime Minister is expected to be the first proposer. A presidential candidate requires a set of 50 proposers and 50 seconders for his or her nomination. At least four sets of nominations may be filed in Murmu’s support, BJP sources said. BJP president J P Nadda also held a meeting with party leaders involved in the polling process.
Meanwhile, the Centre has accorded a Z+ security cover of CRPF commandos to the Draupadi Murmu, officials said on Wednesday.
The armed squad took over the security of Murmu, 64, early Wednesday morning, a senior officer told PTI.
