New Delhi, June 19: India is eagerly waiting for their new first person. The upcoming Presidential poll will decide the face of new Indian representative in the World. Today BJP has announced Bihar’s Ram Nath Kovind as their presidential candidate. The name is not a very famous one in Indian politics. Many people may wonder who is he and why he deserves to be our president. In answer to these questions, we will go back to his root. He started his journey from a farmer family and always had an upward mobility in his career. But he never forgot the root.
A career in Law:
“Kovind's knowledge & understanding of the Constitution will benefit nation”,
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said. Now here comes the reason why he has made this statement- Kovind is an advocate in professional life. Not only that, he was in the highest administrative system of India. An IAS who even worked in Supreme Court as a lawyer cannot be a less deserving candidate as a President than any other. He was Central Government Advocate in Delhi High Court from 1977 to 1979. had practised in Delhi High Court and Supreme Court for about 16 years till 1993.
The son of Uttar Pradesh has worked for downtrodden throughout his political career. Kovind is a former President of the BJP Dalit Morcha (1998-2002) and President of the All-India Koli Samaj.
He worked for backwards classes with the highest effort. He was elected to Rajya Sabha from the state of Uttar Pradesh during the two terms of 1994-2000 and 2000-2006.
Career as Diplomat:
Kovind’s educational stature will make everyone’s jaw drop. Ramnath Kovind Represented India in the United Nations in New York and addressed United Nations General Assembly in October 2002. That does mean he already presented nation on an international forum. Along with law, constitution he also knows how PMO works as he was Personal Secretary to Prime Minister Morarji Desai.
Education needs to be spread- he proved that. In 2015 he asked Lalu’s son Tej Pratap Yadav to repeat his oath when he read "apekshit, instead of upekshit’ during the oath-taking ceremony. He already has an eye for the betterment of others. Hence it is very much likely he would help to build a better nation if he wins.
