Congress president Sonia Gandhi has convened a meeting of Opposition leaders on Tuesday to decide on fielding a joint candidate to take on the BJP nominee, which is yet to be revealed. 

Congress leaders have also reached out to the JD(U), which had broken ranks with the Opposition coalition and declared support to Ram Nath Kovind, the BJP candidate for the Presidential election.

After back channel talks, the JD(U) has made it clear that its support to Kovind was a “one-off issue” and the party staunchly supported the Opposition coalition spearheaded by the Congress.

JD(U) president and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was upset at the “delaying 
tactics” of the Congress in declaring the Opposition candidate for the Presidential election. Kumar announced his support to Kovind, a day after his candidature was announced by the BJP on June 19.
