Draupadi Murmu, the ruling NDA’s presidential candidate, will visit Andhra Pradesh’s capital Amaravati on Tuesday as part of her election campaign.
After landing at Vijayawada International Airport in Gannavaram at 2.45 pm, she will reach a convention center in Mangalagiri to meet YSR Congress MPs and MLAs.
Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will later host tea for Murmu at his residence. The YSRC, which has 31 MPs and 151 MLAs, has pledged its support to Murmu in the presidential election to be held on July 18.
The opposition Telugu Desam with four MPs and 23 MLAs has also announced that it will support the NDA candidate. The lone Jana Sena MLA who has virtually joined the YSRC will also vote together.
Actually, all the votes from Andhra Pradesh will go to Murmu.
