BJP-led NDA’s pick for the Presidential nominee, Governor of Bihar Ram Nath Kovind, is a lawyer by profession and a Dalit leader by caste. Belonging to the Dalit community Koli, Kovind had also been BJP Scheduled Caste Morcha chief (1998-2002) and President of the All-India Koli Samaj. Hailing from Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh, Kovind is a Hindutva ideologue by thinking and a dedicated BJP worker by political affiliation. He is also close to Home Minister Rajnath Singh and a hardcore supporter of PM Modi's demonetization drive.
