New Delhi: Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu, a veteran BJP leader from Andhra Pradesh, will be NDA's vice presidential candidate, party president Amit Shah said today.

Naidu was chosen at the BJP Parliamentary board meeting in New Delhi attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other senior party leaders.

 

A fitting candidate for the office of Vice President, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Venkaiah Naidu.

The 68-year old Naidu currently holds the portfolios of Information and Broadcasting and Housing and Urban Affairs.

The former BJP president is pitted against Gopalkrishna Gandhi, who was chosen by an alliance of 18 opposition parties, including the Congress.

The electoral college for the August 5 election consists of 790 MPs of the two chambers of Parliament.

Naidu will file his nomination on Tuesday at 11 am, Shah said.
