NDA Presidential Candidate Ram Nath Kovind has 76% posts on social media posts in favour of him.

The Presidential election will be held in India on 17th July 2017, and counting of votes will be done on the 20th July 2017 i.e. five days before the incumbent President's term expires. As no term limit exists in India, the incumbent candidate is eligible for re-election.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP Amit Shah kept their cards close to their chest. Ram Nath Kovind who is the Governor of Bihar, was announced as the candidate of Bhartiya Janta Party(BJP)-led NDA for the post of President of India by BJP president Amit Shah on 19th June 2017. Kovind is a Dalit leader and a politician from Bhartiya Janta Party. Kovind filed his nomination for the election on 23rd June 2017. In Kovind, Modi and Shah found a man who fits the bill. According to them, the candidate should be a Dalit, or a Tribal, he should be a senior well-read politician and non-controversial. It makes difficult for the opposition parties unless and until they also choose a Dalit candidate against Kovind. This will breach opposition unity to a great extent. 


It is a master stroke as Ram Nath Kovind fills every element that the opposition accuses BJP off. Opposition hailed the allegation that BJP is Anti-Dalit. Ram Nath Kovind is a part of the Dalit community, was the President of BJP's Dalit Morcha between 1998 and 2002. He fiercely advocated for the Dalit rights. Another accusation is that BJP is Anti-Schedule Caste, and Anti-Adivasi. Kovind is a part of the Koli ethnic group, who are a part of the OBC, Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribes according to the National Commission for Backward Castes and the 2001 Census. Adding to the list of accusations is a premise that BJP is Anti-Farmers. Kovind comes from a family of farmers, his father was a farmer.

However, his credibility, achievements and experience outlive other factors this further adding to his potential and capability of serving as a good President to our nation.
