Bjp names dalit leader as presidential candidate

20 Juin, 2017, 16:53 | Author: Marc Bacque

But instead of coming to us with the proposal they announced the candidate. He stayed at the BJP chief's residence for almost an hour where both are believed to have discussed the formalities related to the presidential poll.

"In order to support someone, we must know the person". However a decision in this regard will be taken only on June 22 when the 18-party opposition front led by the Congress will hold a meeting to discuss the latest development.

"Although Kovind has been associated with the RSS and the BJP from the beginning but since he is a Dalit, our party's stand towards him can not be negative". However we don't have numbers and Pawar ji himself has said no for it.

Senior BJP leader M. Venkaiah Naidu spoke to party veterans L.K. Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi.

A critical chink in the opposition ranks was reflected in Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar's statement.

Patil defeated NDA candidate and Vice President B.S. Shekhawat. The Sena chief agreed, contradicting the BJP, which supported NDA candidate P.A. Sangma.

This time round, the Sena stance on Kovind's candidature would be considered crucial as it is a partner both at the centre and in Maharashtra.

The BJP on Monday announced Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind, a Dalit, as the NDA nominee for the Presidential post.

Shah further said that the saffron party hoped that the Dalit nominee, Kovind, would remain unchallenged as the choice and would be unanimously selected as the President of India.

Meanwhile, Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee didn't seem happy with the Kovind's candidature.

The SP is likely to support the Congress candidate while RJD leader Lalu Yadav, who is likely to miss the June 22 meeting as he has to appear in court in Ranchi, has made it clear he would like the Opposition to field a candidate. "I have told them about my views", he said. "But they informed us after taking a decision". "They did inform us but only after they had decided on the name", he said and termed the outreach by the BJP as a "formality".

Chandrasekhar Rao welcomed the NDA government's decision, BJP's ally Shiv Sena remained apprehensive. But other parties like the TRS, which is in power in Telangana, were unambiguous in their support. "And in most of these contest BJP has put up a contesting candidate", he added.

"Speaking to the media, Mayawati seemed not impressed by BJP" candidate.

Nominating a Dalit for the President's post makes it hard for Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi to further their own interests in this respect. Kumar also applauded him for his "impartiality" during his tenure as Bihar Governor.

Earlier in the day, Naveen had told reporters, "No one has talked to me", on queries about Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley speaking to him on Presidential polls.

"His name did not come during our discussion".
