New Delhi: Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu stated that he is unable to understand why the Congress was opposing NDA Presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind in fact he would ask Congress to support Kovind.
While talking to the media, Naidu stated: “We have a comfortable majority. All major political parties are supporting Kovind. The Congress alone knows why it is contesting because they do not have numbers on their side. I would still ask them to support … Kovind.”
After Kovind filed his nomination, Naidu went on to say: “Kovind is a good candidate. He is non-controversial, educated and experienced and has been good as Bihar Governor. He has worked among the weaker sections and the downtrodden. I cannot understand why (the) Congress is opposing him.”
