After the hour-long meeting ended, Kovind went to have lunch at the chief minister's residence.
Kovinds assurance appeared to have cleared doubts of several BJD MLAs and MPs who initially sounded sceptical about the party backing him.
Four MLAs of the Kirori Lal Meena led National People's Party in Rajasthan will support NDA nominee Ram Nath Kovind in the presidential election. "Kovindji has assured us that he will act in an impartial manner and protect the interest of all states and languages", BJD MP Baijayant Panda told reporters after the meeting.
"As per the direction of the party's central leadership, we have chose to support the NDA nominee in the presidential election", Meena, a former BJP leader, told PTI. "The NDA has nominated Mr. Kovind for the highest post in view of his inspiring personality and leadership traits", he said in an apparent reference to the remarks by Opposition's nominee Meira Kumar.
Kovind addressed the BJD MLAs and MPs at the Assembly conference hall after the chief minister's brief introduction.
Patnaik further stated that, "My party (BJD) is supporting Ram Nath Kovind as the presidential candidate and we had a meeting today". BJP and BJD leaders of the state accorded rousing welcome to Kovind.
Before the meeting, Patnaik, Kovind and Union Health Minister and senior BJP leader J P Nadda raised hands in unison, he said.
"I am very happy to be here".
