TRS to support NDA candidate for Presidential election

IANS  |  Hyderabad 

Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Monday decided to support NDA's Presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind.

Telangana's ruling party took the decision after its president and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao received a phone call from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Soon after deciding the candidature of Bihar Governor Kovind, Modi telephoned Rao and requested his support for the candidature.

"As per your suggestion we have decided upon a Dalit candidate for the Presidential post," a statement from the Chief Minister quoted the Prime Minister as saying. Modi requested Rao to support the candidate.

The chief consulted the party colleagues and later conveyed his party support for the Presidential candidate to the PM.
