He will meet former Chief Minister O Panneerselvam-led AIADMK faction at the Russian Cultural Centre, according to BJP sources.

The Bhartiya Janata Party has projected its National Democratic Alliance (NDA) as a conglomeration of 33 political parties, but nine of these parties, including three from Tamil Nadu and four from Kerala, have not a single MP or MLA to vote for its presidential candidate Ramnath Kovind.

Earlier he arrived in the morning by special chartered flight to canvass for his candidature and seek the support of political parties.

Puducherry-based All India NR Congress chief N Rangasamy and his party legislators met Kovind at a hotel in Chennai. He subsequently lost general elections to pave the way for chief minister V Narayansamy of the Congress.

INLD extended support to Kovind who met INLD leader Abhay Chautala here today. OPS, as the former CM is referred to, told media persons that "we had announced our support to Sri Kovind the moment his name was announced".

Opposition presidential candidate Meira Kumar on Saturday met Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) chief Karunanidhi at his residence in Chennai to garner support.

"I want to thank everyone who supported me". After the meeting, Kovind left the Tamil Nadu capital by a special chartered flight.

Both Kovind and Kumar have started touring states to seek support from members of the electoral college.

Sonia Gandhi has called the presidential election "a fight of ideologies". The morning meeting was attended by Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar, along with Haryana cabinet ministers, state BJP president Subhash Barala, and other party MPs and MLAs. Kovind assured that he would remain above party politics after being elected to the office of President.
