2022 Presidential Election: Voting to elect India’s next president is underway amid claims of cross-voting in favor of Droupadi Murmu. The BJP-led NDA’s candidate appeared to be ahead of the opposition’s Yashwant Sinha even ahead of the election. While many were predicting that Droupadi could win by maxing out the votes, veteran Bollywood actress Anupam Kher has declared her victory. The actor wrote on Twitter: “For the past few days, one phrase has been echoing in my head. Thought I’d write it today! “I, Citizen of India, humbly proclaim #DraupadiMurmu ji President of India, Jai Hind!”
Parliamentarians, legislators, and legislators across the country voted to choose the next president, and by the time the vote was completed there were ample indications that Murmu would win against Sinha. Among those who have voted out so far in the presidential election are reportedly NCP-MLA Kandhal S. Jadeja, Odisha Congress-MLA Mohammed Moquim and also a leader of the Samajwadi party.
Earlier, Maharashtra BJP leader Ashish Shelar expressed his confidence in Droupadi Murmu, saying: “NDA presidential candidate Droupadi Murmu’s victory is assured. We have every confidence that she will win with record votes from Maharashtra,” said Shelar.
