The former Lok Sabha Speaker would garland a statue of her father late Jagjivan Ram and interact with MPs, MLAs and MLCs, Left party leaders, senior journalists and intellectuals.

After their nomination last month, Kumar and Kovind have been visiting various states as part of their campaign for the top constitutional post.

Kovind, on the other hand, would visit Hyderabad on 4 July, Telangana BJP spokesperson Krishna Sagar Rao said Sunday.

During the day-long visit, he is expected to meet MPs and MLAs of the ruling TRS, opposition BJP and Telangana TDP.

While the TDP is a constituent of the NDA, the TRS has announced support for Kovind's candidature.
