On Tuesday night, the NDA named its presidential candidate and, much to everyone's surprise, Draupadi Murmu was picked. She is expected to win the contest easily, now that Odisha's ruling party BJD has lent its support to her already. Although BJD is not part of the NDA, the regional party will support Murmu because she is from Odisha. She has also previously served the Naveen Patnaik government as a Minister. 

Meanwhile, Murmu's latest video is going viral on the Internet. ANI today shot a video of the future President of India sweeping the floor of a Lord Shiva temple in Rairangpur in Odisha before offering prayers there. 

She will be the first tribal President of India. She will also be the first President to be born after Independence.

It's said that the BJP's top leadership, including BJP National President JP Nadda, mooted 19 other names. Narendra Modi and Amit Shah favoured Murmu because she is known for her integrity and her contributions toward women's empowerment.
