New Delhi: BJP-led NDA’s Vice Presidential candidate, Jagdeep Dhankhar, filed his nomination on Monday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP national president J P Nadda, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, and other BJP leaders were present while Dhankhar filed his nomination.

Jagdeep Dhankhar resigned from the post of governor of West Bengal, after being announced as NDA’s Vice Presidential candidate for the upcoming polls. Dhankhar was appointed as the Governor of West Bengal in 2019.

J P Nadda, BJP president, made the announcement and praised Dhankhar as a “Kisan-Putra” (farmer’s son) and “people’s governor.”

Nadda also urged the opposition groups to back Jagdeep Dhankhar, the vice presidential candidate of the ruling National Democratic Alliance, citing the candidate’s humble background.

Meanwhile, Margaret Alva, a senior Congress leader, and former Union minister have been announced as the opposition’s joint candidate for the vice presidential election on August 6.
