Kovind to meet MPs, MLAs in Kashmir on Wednesday

Kovind to meet MPs, MLAs in Kashmir on Wednesday”

NDA's constituents have over 48.6 per cent of votes in the electoral college that will elect the next president. The BJP's stance was symbolic to make inroads into the non-Jatav Dalit vote-banks to not just better its electoral grip in the key state for the future but also corner Mayawati, a Jatav Dalit, more.

"We are preparing a detailed plan for his visit", a BJP leader said. Apart from putting the ruling BJP in an awkward situation, Sonia also wanted to create a common ground for all non-BJP forces to unit to take on the ruling party during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. He also added that Ram Nath Kovind has had a simple life and he will set an example as the president. However, Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray later came out in support of the NDA candidate.

Non-NDA parties supporting Kovind include JD (U) (1.91% of the votes), AIADMK (5.39%), BJD (2.99%), TRS (2%), YSRCP (1.53%) and INLD (0.38%).

Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar has broken ranks with the Opposition, pledging support to Mr Kovind. "I will request Lalu Prasad ji to control such leaders", state JD (U) chief spokesman Sanjay Singh said.

"We have already announced our support for Kovind and even signed as proposers". The second nomination was filed in Hindi, endorsed by Shah and other leaders.

A fourth set will be filed June 28, the last date of filing of nominations.

The Dalit leader is fielded against former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, the candidate of opposition parties including the Congress, for the Presidential Election. President Pranab Mukherjee's term ends on July 24. "But when the defeat of the opposition candidate is certain they have fielded her as a scapegoat.This clearly shows that it has no commitment to elect leaders from marginalized sections to high offices and had made a decision to field her purely done as a token exercise". The first was K R Narayanan, who was in the Rashtrapati Bhavan in 1997-2002.

Kovind resigned from the post of Bihar Governor after he was selected by the Modi Government as its candidate for the country's top post.

He enjoys a clean reputation and has steered clear of controversy in his over 26-year-old political career. However, Saha said that he or his party wouldn't support anyone who had got a history of divisive politics to their credit.

Likewise, as a president, he'll try to maintain the dignity of this post.
