While Naidu was the proposer, YSR Congress Party's Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy seconded Kovind's fourth set of nomination papers. Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Ananth Kumar and a few other BJP leaders, including party general secretary Bhupinder Yadav, were also present there.

"We are confident that our nominee, who is widely acceptable to one and all as he is the most suitable candidate, will get elected by a comfortable margin," Naidu said after filing the papers before the Lok Sabha secretary general, who is the returning officer for the 17 July presidential election.

He said important political parties like JD(U), BJD, TRS and both the factions of the AIADMK have come forward to support the NDA nominee. Kovind is currently campaigning in various parts of the country, and meeting MPs and MLAs to garner support.

He had on 23 June filed three sets of nomination papers. Wednesday is the last date for filing of nominations
