TMC MLA's vote for Kovind in Presidential Elections

Mamata Banerjee: "We voted for Meira Kumar to register our protest against "present atrocities" in the country".

On one hand, BJP is confident that their candidate, Ram Nath Kovind will win comfortably.

Praful Patel, had been reacting to the reports by a private news channel. While Ram Nath Kovind has been able to get the support of non-NDA parties like JD (U) and TRS, Meira Kumar could not convince some of the congress ally like JD (U).

The predicted outcome of the presidential polls is heavily tilted in favour of Ram Nath Kovind, the ruling party-nominated candidate who is now the governor of the state of Bihar.

The MPs who did not cast their vote were Trinamool Congress MP Tapas Pal, BJD's Rama Chandra Hansdah and Anbumani Ramadoss of PMK.

Two MLAs from Jameedara Party also attended the meeting, extending their support while NPP (National People Party), which has four members in the assembly, already announced support to Kovind.

At the all-party meeting convened by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged leaders to reach out to MPs and MLAs of their respective parties to ensure that "not a single vote goes waste".
