Kovind is from RSS ranks, oppn must put up candidate, says CPI

Earlier in the day, the BJP had held a Parliamentary Board meeting to decide its candidate for the 2017 Presidential elections. In an effort to build an unopposed consensus for the upcoming presidential polls, Shah paid a "courtesy" visit to Thackeray on Sunday. This three-member committee, which was constituted by Shah last week, comprises of senior BJP leaders and Union ministers Rajnath Singh, M Venkaiah Naidu and Arun Jaitley.

Since past week, the party's committee has been engaging in fierce negotiations over the name of the candidate which will most likely garner maximum support from across the board. They (BJP) have the complete freedom to choose the candidate, it is the biggest party, they lead the NDA, we have trust in the prime minister... In fact, Kumar was the first non-BJP leader to call on Kovind in Raj Bhavan on Monday soon after Shah announced his candidature.

He was elected to the Rajya Sabha from Uttar Pradesh in April 1994 and served for two consecutive terms till March 2006.
