The BJP packed a surprise punch when it announced Ram Nath Kovind as its candidate for the next President of India. The former Governor of Bihar is in the race to Rasina Hill and if one looks at the numbers in the electoral college, he is expected to have a comfortable ride home. Kovind is an articulate leader. He always maintained a low profile and dealt tactfully with issues. So low profile that when his name was announced by Amit Shah, he said, ” abhi mein unka parichay karvatha hun.” ( now I will introduce you to him).
