Draupadi Murmu was named as the NDA’s presidential candidate on Tuesday. When President Pranab Mukherjee was about to leave Rashtrapati Bhavan five years ago, she was thought to be a strong candidate.
At the time, the tribal leader from Odisha who was also the governor of Jharkhand was thought to be one of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s best choices.
The NDA is expected to get 48% of the vote, so if she becomes President, it will help the BJP’s tribal agenda a lot. It could also help the party’s chances in Odisha, where it has been trying to gain support against the BJD.
