Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind

New Delhi: The BJP on Monday announced Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind, as its nominee for the Presidential poll.

Party president Amit Shah announced that the BJP parliamentary board had decided on Kovind’s name. Shah said Kovind, who came from Dalit community, had struggled in life to reach this position.

The BJP chief said the name had been discussed with all NDA allies and opposition leaders, including Congress President Sonia Gandhi and former prime minister Manmohan Singh. Shah said Sonia had told him that they would get back to him after consulting the party, reads a note in The Tribune.

Meanwhile, the BJP’s masterstroke has stumped everyone, including the media, as Kovind was nowhere on the radar. As the party had pointed out earlier, their candidate has come as a surprise.

Sources say that being Dalit, Kovind is unlikely to face opposition from other parties. This is also a smart move by the party to reach out to the Dalit vote bank.

With one stone, the party has made several political kills. Sources say the party has kept the surprise element intact, just as it did when it chose Yogi Adityanath over others as the UP CM.
