Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya and Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar - all Parliamentarians - and all but three Parliamentarians of the Trinamool Congress will cast their vote in their respective home states - Uttar Pradesh, Goa and West Bengal.

Meanwhile, speculation over cross-voting triggered a war of words between the political parties.

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the BJP's state unit chief Raosaheb Danve, Union ministers Nitin Gadkari and Anant Geete (Shiv Sena), BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya and Maharashtra minister Mahadev Jankar (RSP) were among thosepresent at the meeting. "In these contests, the numbers may be against us".

At the outset, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, LoP Narasingha Mishra and BJP's Rourkela MLA Dilip Ray have already casted their votes for their respective candidates so far.

During his visit to all the states, Kovind, who is a consensus NDA candidate, has received overwhelming support from everybody, Gadkari claimed. Also, it was expected that non-NDA parties like All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), Yuvajana Shramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP), Biju Janata Dal (BJD), Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) might vote in his favour.

Both Kovind and Kumar held a series of meetings across states to mobilise support for their candidature. Thirty-three observers have been appointed by the EC to oversee the election. Let the presidential poll get over first, he said. The PM said that Kovind's journey, whether as a lawyer or a politician, has always been non-controversial, and his Presidential poll campaign has been the same.

"This is the supreme post of the country".
