Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh on Sunday said that Kumar would interact with the state legislators.

She would appeal to legislators of the Congress and other like-minded parties to back her candidature for the top post, he said.

Meira Kumar will also address Congress legislators at the party office here at 4 pm and fly back to Delhi later the same evening.

NDA's Presidential nominee Ram Nath Kovind was in Bhopal on Saturday during which he addressed a meeting of BJP legislators and MPs and sought support for his candidature.

Earlier on a visit to Patna on Saturday, Kumar had said, "Yeh vichardhara ki ladai hai, mere liye yehi hai," at Sadaqat Ashram, the Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee headquarters on the final day of her three-day visit to Bihar to seek support for her candidature.

Before leaving for Ranchi to campaign, she said that in India, since ancient times, people used to respect their own religion and at the same time respect other religions. "It is an age-old tradition of our country."

She said that Bihar is her birthplace. "Yehi meri janambhumi hai, I am proud of it."
