Former Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar has been announced as the Opposition’s Presidential nominee.
A confident Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday, while maintaining that the NDA Government’s presidential nominee Ramnath Kovind will win with majority, said that the Congress Party is using Meira Kumar as a ‘sacrificial goat’ in this election.
Post the end-moment announcement of the presidential nominee by the Opposition, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav-faction member Ramgopal Yadav on Friday said Meira Kumar is a better candidate than NDA Government’s presidential candidate Ramnath Kovind.
Yadav also said that Meira’s stature is high, keeping in mind her political career and she being the daughter of well-known politician Babu Jagjivan Ram.
Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday said the Opposition has disappointed the nation by announcing former Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar as its Presidential nominee.
