The President elections will be held on Monday across the country with Ramnath Kovind contesting as NDA candidate while Meera Kumar is contesting with the support of opposition parties.
Elaborate arrangements have been made at AP Assembly at Velagapudi. The polling will be held in secret ballot system. The counting of votes will be taken up on July 20.
Two compartments have been established in the Assembly to facilitate the MLAs/MPs who come more at a time. Senior IAS officer Kauldhar is the election observer. With the TDP and YSRCP supporting Ramnath Kovind, the polling would be on one side since there are no representatives from Congress.
The first vote would be cast by YSRCP president Jagan Mohan Reddy and Nara Chandrababu Naidu from TDP.
