- Opposition to Meet Today Over Prez Nominee, OPS Backs Kovind
AIADMK deputy general secretary TTV Dhinakaran will be taking a decision on whom to support only after meeting VK Sasikala at the Parappana Agrahara prison in Bengaluru.
Unfazed by JD(U)’s decision to back NDA’s Presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind, major Opposition parties will meet on Thursday amid indications that former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar could be their nominee for the presidential election.
Meira Kumar met Congress President Sonia Gandhi at her residence on Wednesday. Though there was no official word about the meeting, it is widely believed that Meira Kumar could be the Opposition’s choice against Kovind.–PTI-News.
