Sinha, who will file his nomination for the presidential polls on June 27, held his first campaign strategy meeting on Wednesday at the NCP office in Delhi.
Talking to reporters, Sinha, 84, said the presidential election is not an individual battle but a fight for the issues plaguing the country.
“I am thankful to all the political parties that have given me the opportunity in the presidential polls. This election is not an individual fight for me. There are issues that the country is facing on which the electoral college has to take a decision,” the former Union minister, who parted ways with the BJP in 2018 and has been a vocal critic of the Modi government, said.
“We will be going to various places in the country to campaign. We are formulating a strategy for that. I congratulate Droupadi Murmu, but this is not me against her, this is an ideological contest. We should not have a rubber-stamp president in the country,” he said.
Leaders like KK Sharma (Nationalist Congress Party), Jairam Ramesh (Congress) and Sudheendra Kulkarni were present at the meeting on Wednesday.
