New Delhi: West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee has given a big statement regarding the Presidential election. He said that if BJP had spoken to us earlier, we could have supported Draupadi Murmu. We would have supported if BJP had informed that they are giving a tribal woman as a candidate.
Mamta Banerjee said that Draupadi Murmu has more chances of victory in the presidential election on July 18. After the change of power in Maharashtra, the strength of NDA has increased. Mamata Banerjee insisted that a candidate with consensus is always better for the country. He also made it clear that TMC will run as per the decision of the opposition parties. Mamta Banerjee said that we have equal respect for all religion, caste and creed. We want the presidential election to be held peacefully. We should have tried to field a female candidate. I could not decide alone.
