Presidential Election 2017: Meira Kumar Is Opposition Candidate

The 2017 presidential election will not be without a contest. And it will see a Dalit versus Dalit. Seventeen Opposition parties Thursday announced that former Lok Sabha Speaker and Congress veteran Meira Kumar will be their joint candidate against the ruling NDA’s presidential nominee Ram Nath Kovind. Daughter of former Deputy Prime Minister and Dalit leader Babu Jagjivan Ram, 72-year-old Kumar, MP for five terms, is from Bihar.

    To be precise even we can say she is the Scape-Goat of Opposition parties to dump her as their candidate and thus proved that Dalit is an Enemy of Dalit instead of respecting the Ruling Party candidate, is it the way to project another Dalit which shows nothing but stupidity !!! She brought disrepute to the Dalit overall by opposing him because she is not the original candidate to be considered by the Opposition which she also knew very well !!!
