UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said Ram Nath Kovind will win Presidential election with a huge margin.


Lucknow:  Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya and Union Minister Uma Bharti were among those who cast their votes for the presidential poll in Lucknow today.

The voting began at 10 am at the Tilak Hall. After casting his vote, the chief minister told reporters that NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind will win the election with a huge margin.

"This is matter of pride for the people of Uttar Pradesh, the son of the state is going to become the President", he said.

Both Mr Adityanath and Mr Maurya have not yet resigned from the Lok Sabha and are voters as MPs.
