NDA’s presidential candidate Kovind is not a ‘Dalit’: Lalu

Patna, July 5 (TheBiharPost/IBNS): RJD president Lalu Prasad on Wednesday alleged the NDA’s presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind is not a “Dalit” as is being published by the BJP.

“Ram Nath Kovindji is not a Dalit,” Prasad alleged, addressing a function in Patna.

“Kovind’s caste figures among the OBC category in Gujarat. This is just an eyewash aimed at neutralising the protest coming from this particular community in the upcoming Gujarat assembly elections,” Prasad explained.

Interestingly, Prasad’s ally, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar has announced his support to Kovind in the presidential elections.

Kumar’s allies, the RJD and the Congress, are on the other hand, supporting opposition’s candidate Meira Kumar.
