Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will have its first coordination committee meeting in the national capital to discuss the impending presidential election today.

The conference will be chaired by BJP head JP Nadda, and will focus on preparations for the next presidential election. On behalf of the BJP, Nadda and Rajnath Singh, the Defence Minister and Deputy Leader of the Lok Sabha, have been tasked with holding talks with all political parties in order to reach an agreement on a presidential candidate.

BJP has constituted a 14-member coordination committee to work with its state units and partners. These individuals may be assigned to other states, and they would travel there and try to coordinate.

Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, the Union Jal Shakti Minister, has been selected as the convenor of the BJP’s election management committee. The committee’s co-conveners are BJP general secretaries Vinod Tawde and C T Ravi.

Union Ministers G Kishan Reddy, Ashwini Vaishnaw, and Sarbananda Sonowal, as well as the Ministers of State for Parliamentary Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal and Health Bharti Pawar, National General Secretary Tarun Chugh, National Vice President DK Aruna, and National Secretary Rituraj Sinha, are part of the team.

On the other side, this election management committee includes BJP women’s wing leader Vanathi Srinivas, Lok Sabha MP from Silchar Dr Rajdeep Roy, and BJP national spokesman Sambit Patra.

The function of the committee members and their obligations in relation to the presidential election might be outlined during the meeting.

Meanwhile, the opposition parties have resolved to run a single presidential candidate.

The 16th Presidential election will take place on July 18, with the results being announced on July 21.
