Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind For President, Opposition Bedazzled

In what is portrayed as a political masterstroke by analysts, BJP has announced Mr. Ram Nath Kovind, Governor of Bihar, as NDA’s presidential candidate. Mr. Kovind is a dalit and his nomination will garner BJP’s strategy for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and dent the opposition’s dalit vote bank.
Now with this move, Congress and its allies will have a huge problem to oppose BJP’s dalit candidate. It is a real catch 22 situation now for Congress. Kovind in all likelihood, will succeed Pranab Mukherjee as the President of India with this move.
