On July 8 (Wednesday), Droupadi Murmu, the NDA's presidential candidate, will travel to Lucknow in an effort to win over voters in the nation's largest state.

Droupadi Murmu would meet with allies as well as BJP MLAs and MPs, according to sources. She would also look for backing from non-BJP parties in addition to this.

Uttar Pradesh, the largest province in the nation, will be important in the presidential election.

One MLA vote is worth 208, while one MP vote is worth 700. 66 Lok Sabha and 25 Rajya Sabha MPs, 273 MLAs from the BJP and its allies, and approximately 1.21 lakh votes total.

As a result, Uttar Pradesh received 14.88% of the votes cast for 10,86,431 people's representatives nationwide.

Droupadi Murmu, a former governor of Jharkhand and tribal chief, has been proposed by the NDA. Yashwant Sinha, a former Union Minister and head of the Trinamool party, has been proposed by the opposition.

Pralhad Joshi, minister of parliamentary affairs, prepared Murmu's nomination papers. She was proposed by BJP president JP Nadda, top ministers Rajnath Singh and Amit Shah, and Prime Minister Modi. Senior BJP leaders and ministers from the Union signed as proposers.

Election day in India is scheduled on July 18, with any necessary counting taking place on July 21. If elected, she would be only the second woman and first tribal leader of India.
