Raja said Naidu spoke to him over the phone after BJP chief Amit Shah announced Kovind's name and sought the CPI's support for his candidature.
The Sena will take a final decision on Wednesday regarding its support to 71-year-old Kovind, who is the governor of Bihar. Party chief Amit Shah made an announcement after a meeting of the BJP Parliamentary board earlier in the day.
The opposition again failed to read the tactics and Congress went for the kill without realizing the tactics of BJP.
A copy of Sharma's complaint, which was circulated by the BJP on Twitter, said that Ayyub's tweet reflected an "extremely casteist, hateful and disrespectful mindset" against the scheduled castes, which Kovind has long represented. However, she too added that the decision will be announced only after the Opposition's meet on 22 June. "This means that you have set your eyes on the Dalit votebank", he said.
Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, for instance, refrained from commenting on the "merits and demerits" of the BJP candidate.
If elected, he would be the second president of that community after K.R. Narayanan. "I have told them about my views", he said.
As to whether the JD-U will back his candidature, Nitish Kumar said: "It is hard to say at this point of time". "Now, they have named a person with RSS background". But other parties like the TRS, which is in power in Telangana, were unambiguous in their support.
"This is not the final decision.I can not say much in this matter as we have an all-political party meeting on June 22".
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday reported Bihar governer Ram Nath Kovind as its presidential competitor. "The post of the President of India is above party politics". "Someone of the stature of Pranab Mukherjee or even Sushma Swaraj or (L K) Advaniji may have been made the candidate". If they support Kovind, they will be breaking Opposition's unity, and if they oppose him, they stood the risk of being branded anti-Dalit. In these "reserved" constituencies political parties have to put up Dalits as candidates. "Instead, now they have announced their candidate", he said. It also announced on Monday that the opposition parties will meet on Thursday and decide their strategy regarding the Presidential polls.
"For the highest post in parliamentary democracy, the BJP and the NDA have been consulting different parties".
While Mayawati is understandably wary of going against the BJP candidate, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar is also in the same boat. "I am sure Shri Ram Nath Kovind will make an exceptional President & continue to be a strong voice for the poor, downtrodden and marginalised".
"Anybody from RSS rank will further divide the country". Mamata Banerjee along with Congress tried hard to form the opposition against the ruling BJP Government. "We hope he will be the unanimous candidate for the election", Shah said.
With two goals on the board, Russia's midfield stopped taking risks and New Zealand struggled to create counter-attacking chances. Aleksandr Samedov's corner found Viktor Vasin who saw his header hacked clear by Michael McGlinchey.
Sekulow again repeated that he can not read minds. "You're asking me now questions about what people are thinking in their minds", Sekulow told Wallace . "No, he's not being investigated", Sekulow interjected.
He said he is "just trying to open a door" on a mission that he thinks his former " Celebrity Apprentice " boss would support. Tillerson said the State Department is still working on the release of the three other USA citizens detained in North Korea .
The one thing that didn't materialize was a large number of trades happening involving players teams didn't want to expose. Vatanen, a fifth-year player, won't be ready for the start of next season after having surgery to fix a shoulder injury.
