Bihar governor Ram Nath Kovind is the BJP-led NDA’s nominee for the post of President of India, said senior BJP leader Amit Shah on Monday.
He made the announcement after a meeting of the BJP Parliamentary board earlier in the day.
Kovind is likely to file his papers on June 23.
“There has been no discussion yet on names for vice president,” the BJP president said.
Now look at what Rajdeep tweets, he says “No political party can oppose a Dalit for president; an uninspiring choice but politically strategic.Wish the new Prez well!
When Modi is not doing anything for dalits these people cry but when he is doing something these Modi hating journos criticize him, its the hate for PM Modi but the love for dalits which makes them do that.
No political party can oppose a Dalit for president; an uninspiring choice but politically strategic.Wish the new Prez well! #RamnathKovind

People trolled him as his favorite topic is no more available to create outrage.
By bringing the Dalit point, you have taken away any other credentials that he must be having for this job. Not expected from you, Sir !!

Why are you against Dalit ? Why a Dalit cannot become Rastrapati ? Why so judgemental ? Just plain "anti-government" ?

Had no idea who is Mr Ramnath Kovind. But since Shekher Gupta, Ayyub,Rajdeep & party discrediting him..must be a good choice. #RamnathKovind

May I know why is the nominee uninspiring? Is it because he is Dalit or from BJP or qualified or not antiHindu?

Mr Rajdeep I think its wrong on your part to call it an uninspiring choice.just because he is a dalit doesn't mean he is uninspiring

Uninspiring because, journos don't find any controversy around this selection. Means good decision by NDA 🙂

Sir you hav problem with everything BJP does. If it is a Dalit, it is tokenism, if a brahmin, cry Brahminical conspiracy.

You can only look from the lense of caste . He is a lawyer and former parliamentarian which you conveniently overlook
