Presidential poll: NDA-pick Kovind rose through the ranks
Born on 1 October 1945, at Derapur district, Uttar Pradesh, Ram Nath Kovind was elected twice to the Rajya Sabha in 1994-2000 and 2000-2006. Kovind held regular interactions with the cross-section of political parties in Bihar during the last three years in office. Ram Nath Kovind served as private secretary to former Prime Minister Morarji Desai even before he joined the BJP in 1977. Political pundits say Opposition parties have no choice but to accept Kovind or put up another Dalit candidate against him.
