After the day-long visit to Patna by NDA's Presidential candidate Draupadi Murmu, NDA leaders, including Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, claimed that she will easily win the election.

"The way Draupadi Murmu is getting support, we are sure about her victory by a big margin," Kumar said.

State Industry Minister Shahnawaz Hussain said: "The NDA is united in Bihar and you saw the glimpse of it today. We are all supporting Draupadi Murmu. Current President Ram Nath Kovind belongs to Scheduled Caste and now we have a tribal woman as the Presidential candidate. She has already won the hearts of 14 crore Bihari people."

Former Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said: "We are all influenced by her simplicity and sincere approach. She is an ideal candidate whom Prime Minister Narendra Modi chose for the President's post. She is going to win by a big margin. I appeal to opposition candidate Yashwant Sinha to withdraw his candidature before the Presidential poll, as he is going to face defeat."

Former Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said: "PM Narendra Modi coined the slogan 'Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikash' and he is sticking to it. Selecting a tribal leader for the post of President is a prime example. A number of opposition parties are also in the favour of Draupadi Murmu. Even Mamata Banerjee has said that had the NDA informed her earlier that Draupadi Murmu would be its candidate, she would have supported her."

Reacting to the candidature of Draupadi Murmu, state RJD chief Jagadanand Singh said: "It is not a contest of personality, it is a contest of ideology. We are fighting for the rights of the tribal people. The NDA is projecting a person for the President's as part of its politics to retain power.

"This is not a question of two candidates. It is a question of two ideologies. They are spreading hatred towards the Muslim community. They are burning the country."
