Thank you for all that you do. Sincerely from the BJP. This was the sarcastic message that Union Minister Smriti Irani had for Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi who raked up the Rohith Vemula suicide issue.
Even as the Chief Minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar tried to break the ice with his deputy, Tejashwi Yadav, the BJP has furnished details of another list of properties alleged to be illegal.
The rumour mills are abuzz with the name of Venkaiah Naidu who the BJP could chose as its candidate for the next Vice President of India. While some in BJP circles say that he is a front runner to the post of VP, others point out that the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi is unlikely to let go of him from the Cabinet.
New Delhi, July 17: Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu will be the NDA’s candidate for the next Vice-President of India. The BJP’s parliamentary board which met earlier today decided that Naidu would contest the Vp elections to be held in August. Venkaiah Naidu, who is the Information and broadcasting minister will be the candidate, the BJP decided at its parliamentary board meeting. The announcement was made by BJP’s national president Amit Shah.
The BJP led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and national president of the party, Amit Shah held discussions with senior leaders on the selection of a candidate for the next Vice President of India. The opposition has already declared Gopal Krishna Gandhi as its candidate for the VP elections.
The BJP has countered the ‘no moustache,’ statement made by Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister, Tejaswi Prasad Yadav. When he became the owner of the property he had turned an adult with a moustache and a beard said BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi.
The Grand Alliance in Bihar appears to be heading for a big split. The question is whether the JD(U)-RJD- Congress alliance in the state is splitting over Nitish Kumar’s support to Ram Nath Kovind, the BJP’s candidate set to become the next President of India.
Narendra Modi does not fail to surprise. On Monday the BJP announced on Monday that their candidate for the next President of India will be Ram Nath Kovind, the Governor of Bihar.
The ruling BJP on Monday said that Ram Nath Kovind will be their candidate for the next President of India. The opposition has clearly said that he will not be a consensus candidate. This would mean an election would be held on July 17 as the opposition gets ready to field its own candidate.
