Former Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar on 30 June said that she is contesting the Presidential elections with confidence, expressing optimism about her chances.
"I am fighting my candidature with great confidence," Kumar told ANI.
Speaking on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) roll-out to be held at midnight today, she said that the Congress will conduct a press conference later to discuss on the matter.
Before filing her nomination papers, she reiterated that it was upsetting for her to see that the bug of casteism is still feeding upon India, which otherwise wants to advance in all aspects.
"It is very upsetting, unfortunate that a country like India, which wants to advance in every aspect, is using a mentality, which is so narrow and dividing, that too also when we are fighting for presidentship," she said.
The Presidential elections are set to take place on 17 July and counting will take place on 24 July.
