Will RamNath Kovind be the unanimous or consensus candidate for Presidential poll ?The NDA has announced their candidate for the President's election. Till yesterday many names were floating in the media and public mind. It may be thus a surprise for the general public and many political observers in seeing Ram Nath Kovind's name announced without anybody getting even a small whiff of that.
In my response to this thread I had said that "There can be a ploy to keep the real probable name secret and allow all other names float around.". That has happened.
I was actually expecting such a name to crop up. The spark I go was from the way Nitish was commenting and giving signals on presidential poll. He was keeping a calculated distance from other opposition parties at the same not breaking altogether. When I combined this with the news of Rahul Gandhi leaving for a trip abroad at this crucial juncture, I could guess something happening or already happened behind the scenes. There were some other things happening which could have effect in Bihar and also TN politics- the two states NDA wants in its side.
The NDA side has played their cards well and sure t have done some god background work.
So I feel that Ram Nath Kovind will be the unanimous choice or consensus candidate of all parties.
If so that is really welcome.
