Lucknow: Describing presidential candidature of Ram Nath Kovid as a monumental decision of BJP-led NDA, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said it was most deserved for Dalits and the principle of Samajik Samrasta.

Talking to media at an impromptu press conference at his official residence, the UP CM said by doing so the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah paid utmost respect to the Dalits of the country. Ram Nath Kovid, a Dalit by caste, is presently the Governor of Bihar and official candidate of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) for the post of the President of India.
