The race to Rashtrapati Bhawan will see a battle between Pranab Mukherjee and Purno Sangma as India's Electoral College votes for a new president on July 19.
Mr Mukherjee is the Congress-led UPA's candidate for the next President of India. His candidacy is supported by all UPA allies except the Trinamool Congress which is yet to state how it will vote. He is also supported by parties like the Samajwadi Party, BSP and RJD. Mr Mukherjee has also managed to garner the support of BJP ally the Janata Dal (United) and two Left parties - the CPM and Forward Bloc. All that support adds up to more than 50 per cent of the electoral college.
Mr Sangma is supported by the BJP and two regional parties, the AIADMK and the BJD. His team is ensuring that numbers or not it will put up a fight.
Ever since they filed their nomination papers, the two candidates have been on a campaign trail across the country. Through this photo gallery, we trace their journey as they meeting leaders from different parties and thank them for their support.
