Who will be the next (14th) President of India? Kovind or Meira

The final scenario is clear for the elections to the top most post in the Indian Republic. The electoral college is gearing up for the voting of the 14th President of India. BJP's so called election-winning brains Prime minister Modi and party president Amit Shah have hurriedly decided and declared Ram nath Kovind who was earlier the Dalit Morcha president as NDA's presidential candidate in order to shut the mouths of the disgruntled allies like Shiv sena and the anti-modi faction within the BJP who were working to field senior and accepted leader Advani. 

On the other side, to counter the BJP's dalit political card, 17 opposition parties under the leadership of Congress (I), CPI(M) and Trinamool Congress etc decided to field former Lok sabha speaker Meira Kumar as the opposition's presidential candidate. Even though Meira Kumar is more capable and popular than Kovind and she is the daughter of a great dalit leader, Even though Kovind appears to have an edge in the electoral college as of now, considering many facts beyond politics, Meira Kumar is also expected to give a tough fight.

The sudden selection and announcement of Kovind as their candidate by BJP leadership was a big surprise for the opposition parties who were being contacted by them for finding a common candidate in consensus who is accepted by one and all. It was not surprising to see many political parties and their corrupt heads like TDP's Chandra Babu Naidu, TRS's Chandrasekhar Rao, YSRCP's Jagan Mohan Reddy, AIADMK's Edappadi Palanisami etc who are all involved in many charges and fear the wrath of p m modi and his 'own' government. The country and the whole world is witnessing how the rulers of the country are laying traps and nooses for all those who oppose, criticise or raise voice against their hidden agendas. So all the leaders and people who have something to fear should support any move taken by these powerful persons. 

But it was quite surprising for all concerned the way in which Bihar CM Nitish Kumar offering his party's support for NDA's Rashtrapati candidate without holding any dialogues with the other opposition parties or his allies. Nitish Kumar's move is very surprising because he is the one who pitched the suggestion of fielding a suitable candidate by the 'grand alliance' opposition parties. It is more surprising to know that he is not heeding to the plea of his 'brother' Lalu Prasad Yadav to reconsider his decision and extend support to the opposition's common candidate. This decision of Nitish has made people guessing why he is very stubborn in his announcement. Is he too have a noose around his neck or is he expecting something...?

As historical blunders are being committed by people in many parts of the world in the recent times, even India cannot expect something different. Lets wait till July 17th and watch for the outcome...!
