Droupadi Murmu will be arriving in Kolkata as the presidential candidate for the National Democratic Alliance. On Saturday afternoon, she will be meeting all BJP MLAs in Kolkata. It will be her first time visiting Kolkata as the NDA presidential nominee.

Last week, the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said that she might have considered backing NDA’s presidential candidate Droupadi Murmu, a tribal leader of the saffron party from Odisha, had the NDA held a discussion with the opposition parties before fielding her. She said, however, that she had not been able to discuss the name of her candidate with the BJP.

Droupadi Mudu, who is originally from Odisha has also been supported by non-NDA party parties like Biju Jata Dal, led by Naveen Patnaik and YSR Congress Party(YSRCP), which is led by Andhra Pradesh CM Jagan Man Mohan Reddy.

Murmu visited Meghalaya earlier and Assam, where she met with the Chief Ministers. It is unknown if she will meet Mamata Banerjee in Bengal during her visit.
