He said Prime Minister Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah have chosen a really good person, who is honest and hardworking.

"Kovindji has worked for several years for the backward classes' welfare", BJP chief Amit Shah said while announcing his name soon after the BJP Parliamentary Board meeting held for the objective at the party head office.

Prime Minister Modi, who on Twitter said Kovind would make "an exceptional President", personally talked to Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Dr Manmohan Singh to seek their support for the BJP's nominee.

Telangana Chief Minister and TRS Chief Rao also extended his support to NDA's presidential candidate after speaking to Prime Minister Modi.

Elaborating the reasons behind BJD's support to the NDA candidate, Patnaik said Ram Nath Kovind is an eminent lawyer belonging to the scheduled caste community.

The World No. 5 will face the qualifier Camila Giorgi or the 20-year-old Natalia Vikhlyantseva next. That happened when No. 1 Angelique Kerber withdrew on Sunday with a strained tendon.

Shah said NDA partner Sena had on its own demanded that RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat be the candidate though it was well-known that Sangh leaders do not contest polls.

The Election Commission of India had started the process of filing the nomination for the fourteenth President of India on June 14.

Reacting to the announcement, Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati said that it would have been better if the NDA had nominated a "non-political" Dalit name. "An intellectual with high values belonging to the Dalit community is very apt in all respects for the president's post", N Chandrababu Naidu, chief of the TDP, told PM Modi. Born in October 1945 in rural Kanpur, Kovind comes from a modest background and has served as the BJP Dalit Morcha president during Atal Bihari Vajpayee's government at the Centre between 1998 and 2002. A communication from the chief minister's office said the prime minister requested Naidu to garner the support of the Trinamool Congress for the NDA candidate. "They did not come back to the opposition and announced the candidate", Yechury told reporters here. In all likelihood, Ram Nath Kovind will become the second Dalit President of India after KR Narayanan.

Accusing the NDA of not bringing up Kovind's name during the previous discussions, Banerjee said that their decision is not a consensus decision.

"So, we said the opposition will meet and take a decision on June 22".

Golden State Warriors one win away from perfection
Cleveland led by six points with three minutes to play but Durant led an impressive 11-0 run to secure the win. The 3-0 lead is big in another way as well.

An opposition leader said they might field former Congress minister and speaker Meira Kumar, also a Dalit, as their candidate.

"I am not for a moment saying that the Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind is unfit to be the President".

"If they have declared Kovind's name for getting Dalit votes, then we are not interested".

In a surprise move, the BJP announced that the low-profile Kovind was the National Democratic Alliance's presidential candidate for the July 17 poll.
