BJP Parliamentary Board to meet to finalise prez nominee

BJP Parliamentary Board to meet to finalise prez nominee

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday arrived at the BJP headquarters to attend the party's Parliamentary Board meeting called to discuss and select the party's candidate for the July 17 presidential election.

"Despite having a majority, we reached out to opposition parties".

The three-member party committee, which includes Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, M Venkaiah Naidu and Arun Jaitley, will brief the board members about the consultations undertaken by them with allies and opposition parties. Each nomination paper has to be signed by at 50 proposers and an equal number of seconders who can also be MLAs.

The opposition, including the Congress, Left and the Bahujan Samaj Party, termed the announcement of Kovind's name as NDA nominee as "unilateral". BSP chief Mayawati said that her party was positive about his nomination because he is a Dalit, and hoped the Opposition does not field a popular Dalit name to counter him.

The BJP is expected to win the Presidential election comfortably. The last date for filing of nominations is June 28.

Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday met Union Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan and held discussions over the Presidential election. Naidu also met Samajwadi Party's Ram Gopal Yadav and Naresh Agrawal. "There were hardly any principles, hence after independence it remained in politics only and only for politics", Shah said.

The BJP, which has an edge in the electoral college, is seeking to muster maximum support for its nominee to ensure a comfortable victory. But the Trinamool is part of the opposition on the Presidential election. "The BJP leaders did not give any name to Congress President Sonia Gandhi but they wanted us to reveal the name of our candidate".

They are said to be considering the name of Gopalakrishna Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi's grandson and a former West Bengal Governor. "We had said (we support) free trade and free agriculture then (when BJP's predecessor Jana Sangh was formed) and today also we are saying free trade and free agriculture", the BJP chief said.
