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).
If elected as the next President of India, Ram Nath Kovind will be the first from the state of Uttar Pradesh. UP has the distinction of sending 9 out of the 13 Prime Ministers of India. However if Kovind makes it to Rashtrapati Bhavan then he will be the first UP born President of India.
