Capability, experience must supersede all consideration for President: Meira

NDA's Presidential Candidate Ram Nath Kovind to File Nomination Today in Presence of Modi CMs Capability, experience must supersede all consideration for President: Meira

"The post of the President carries the responsibility of safeguarding and defending our constitutional principles". He does not know anything about presidential election", Modi said."Tejashwi and his elder brother Tej Pratap Yadav are minister sons of Lalu Prasad and Rabri Devi. Based in New Delhi, Kumar is married to lawyer, Manjul Kumar. "But, they announced the name of Ram Nath Kovind without consulting us", Reddy said, criticising the BJP for not going for a consensus candidate for the top post.

The JD (U) had announced support to Kovind despite having an alliance with the RJD and Congress.

JD (U)'s ally in Bihar, RJD has, however, backed the idea of fielding an Opposition candidate. Even on Friday, at Yadav's Iftar party, Kumar and the RJD chief hardly spoke despite sitting next to each other.

She was Congress General Secretary between 1991-92 and 1996-99, and has been a member of the Congress Working Committee, the highest decision-making body of the party.

Asked whether she was upset with Nitish Kumar for supporting the NDA nominee, she said, "I am not upset with anybody".

Meanwhile, Ram Nath Kovind, fielded by the ruling BJP-led National Democratic Alliance, filed nomination papers for President at Parliament House.


"We never left him, it was he who quit the NDA", remarked BJP minister Giriraj Singh.

JD-U insiders, however, do not see any trouble for the party.

The Opposition parties have begun gearing up for a symbolic battle against the BJP in the upcoming Presidential election.

Joining the critics of NDA's Presidential nominee, Shiv Sena said it would not extend its support if the Centre is eyeing a vote bank by nominating a Dalit face for the upcoming President polls. Kumar questioned, and reiterated that his party would support NDA candidate Kovind in the July 17 Presidential polls.

The BJP and its allies have won the commitment of enough regional parties to have Mr Kovind elected.

As the Scroll reports, a senior opposition leader said: "There is no doubt Meira Kumar has an impressive resume and she is a well recognized face but finally it was the Bihar factor which went in her favor". The first was K R Narayanan, who was in the Rashtrapati Bhavan in 1997-2002. Ali Shabbir said that the time has come for the TRS to express its gratitude for Telangana and redeem its commitment to promoting Dalits in public life by backing the UPA's Presidential candidate.
