BJP's presidential nominee announcement leaves no scope for discussion: Left

BJP president Amit Shah pointed out towards the party policy of considering the welfare of the Nation on priority basis.

After meeting ministerial colleague Ram Vilas Paswan, Naidu told reporters that the NDA presidential candidate would be announced before June 23.

BJP president Amit Shah has said his party has been pro-free trade and free agriculture policy since its inception.

On Friday, the first meeting between the government and the opposition on presidential elections remained inconclusive as no names were discussed by either side. Also, the Board members will be briefed about the consultation done by a three-member party panel with allies and Opposition parties regarding the Presidential election 2017.

Communist Party of India leader D. Raja said the BJP's announcement was "non-transparent".

This three-member committee was constituted by Shah last week and it comprised senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders Rajnath Singh, M. Venkaiah Naidu and Arun Jaitley.

According to Sills, evidence confirmed that Dubose and Rowe burglarized a residence near where they ditched the vehicle . After their escapee, the fugitives stole first a Honda Civic and then a Ford F-250 pickup truck.

Shah, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's closest adviser and top campaign strategist, played up the humble origins of Kovind, 71, who has served two terms in the upper house of parliament and is a practicing lawyer.

"I hope all will agree to the name", he said at a press conference.

"During the meeting (with Naidu and Rajnath), they wanted a consensus but did not come up with a name".

According to reports, the BJP committee is holding discussions with all parties as they are trying to finalise a consensus candidate for presidential poll before Prime Minister Modi departs for foreign tour on June 24.

Multiple sources have told HT that former diplomat Gopalkrishna Gandhi could be the potential opposition candidate, with Left parties pushing for Mahatma Gandhi's grandson for the country's highest post. BJP ally Shiv Sena, though, has objected to it.

If the ruling BJP-led NDA and the opposition fail to reach an agreement with regards to a common candidate, polling will be held for the election of the next President on July 17, with the individual nominations facing each other. The last date for filing nominations is 28 June, but a candidate can withdraw from the electoral race until 1 July.
