TRS supported Yashwant Sinha in Presidential Polls

TRS supported Yashwant Sinha in Presidential Polls: Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) has endorsed Yashwant Sinha, a member of the united opposition, two days before the deadline for presidential nominations.

Telangana Minister KT Rama Rao said he will represent TRS at the nomination while announcing the party’s choice today.

The announcement comes less than two weeks after Mamata Banerjee’s big meeting to discuss a joint strategy for the Presidential election was cancelled because K Chandrashekhar Rao, the chief of the TRS and the Telangana state government, objected strongly to the Congress being invited.

Rao and Banerjee had become close friends in their desire to defeat the BJP. KCR has said that sharing a platform with Congress was not an option.

“TRS Party Online’s leader Sri KCR Garu has decided to endorse Sri @YashwantSinha Ji’s campaign for president of India.

I’ll be representing the TRS at the nomination today together with our members of parliament, “Today, KT Rama Rao tweeted.

The “technique of attempting to bring up an opposition Presidential candidate” has also been criticized by TRS.

“In any case, TRS disagrees with this strategy for attempting to field a presidential challenger. In this instance, the candidate had already been selected, and after consulting with the candidate, a meeting was scheduled. Why was this approach taken? The proper course of action would have been to have discussions, come to an agreement, get the candidate’s consent, and then announce the name after the discussion, “According to the party.

Today is the deadline for Yashwant Sinha to submit his candidacy. He has said that, if elected president, he would be “more constitutional” than Draupadi Murmu of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Additionally, he said that the election is “a struggle of ideas to maintain the Constitution of India,” even if they do not have a “personal conflict” with Ms Murmu.

Abhishek Banerjee, Saugat Ray, and MLA Tapas Roy will represent Trinamool Congress at the nomination. Akhilesh Yadav, the leader of the Samajwadi Party, will attend the event when he is in Delhi.

Last week, opposition parties announced that Yashwant Sinha would run for president. Sharad Pawar, the leader of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Farooq Abdullah, and Gopalkrishna Gandhi, the former governor of West Bengal, all rejected to be the opposition parties’ presidential candidates.

The opposition camp aims to put up a credible fight even though the NDA candidate has the best chance of winning. According to Sharad Pawar, the situation in the presidential election is not as dire as it has been made up to be, and the opposition parties would need to work together if they want to mount a strong challenge.

To elect the President, one must surpass the 50 per cent threshold, and the governing party now has roughly 49 per cent of the electoral college.

Today, when Yashwant Sinha files his papers to run for president, several opposition heavyweights, including former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, and others, are expected to be present at Parliament House.

Elections will take place on July 18, and nominations must be submitted by June 29.
