Not against Kovind s nomination: Mayawati

New Delhi June 19 (IANS) Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Monday said her party will not oppose Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind s candidature as presidential nominee unless the opposition announces a popular Dalit name.

We are not against Ram Nath Kovind s nomination. It would have been better if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had taken all opposition parties into confidence before announcing the name.

As he is a Dalit we can t oppose his name but only if the united opposition doesn t announce a popular Dalit name said Mayawati.

We are also of the opinion that it would have been better if the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) had named some non-political Dalit person for the post of President she added.

The BJP on Monday named Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind a Dalit and a BJP leader as the ruling NDA s candidate for the July 17 presidential election.
