NDA Presidential Candidate 2022: For the National Democratic Front (NDA), the country’s ruling party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced the candidate for the Presidential election. Draupadi Murmu will become the presidential candidate from NDA. This decision was taken in the BJP’s Parliamentary Board meeting held after the meeting held at the BJP headquarters late on Tuesday evening. Earlier, a meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Board was held at the party headquarters to brainstorm on the name of the Presidential candidate.
With this, if Draupadi Murmu wins the presidential election, then she will be the first president of the country to come from the tribal community. This means BJP has cleared the way for giving the country the first tribal community president. On the other hand, if we talk about Dalit, the first Dalit President was given by Congress when KR Narayanan was sworn in as President in the year 1997. Although his claim was very strong at that time because he had the support of all the opposition. On the other hand, if we talk about the first Muslim President of the country, then Congress had given us that too. In the year 1967, Zakir Hussain became the first President of the country. He was the President for 4 years and he died while in office.
