BJP Chairman JP Nadda held a meeting with the party’s 14-member leadership team for the July 18 presidential election and deliberated on ballot strategy, sources said on Sunday.
Nadda met the party leaders, including the team leader, Union Minister Gajendra Shekhawat, at his residence here.
Other leaders of the team, including Union Ministers G Kishen Reddy and Arjun Ram Meghwal, and BJP General Secretaries Vinod Tawde and CT Ravi, were also present at the meeting.
According to sources, the BJP’s strategy for the presidential election was discussed in detail at the meeting.
The BJP had allowed its Chairman JP Nadda and Union Minister Rajnath Singh to consult with other political parties, including those in the opposition, to reach consensus on a presidential candidate.
Nadda and Singh have already contacted several opposition leaders including Sharad Pawar, Mamata Banerjee, Nitish Kumar, Naveen Patnaik and Farooq Abdullah to reach a consensus presidential candidate.
With numbers on its side, the BJP-led NDA is expected to secure victory for its presidential candidate.
