President Kovind was elected because of his caste: Shocking statement by Rajasthan CM and Congress leader Ashok Gehlot

Gehlot said that the Modi government elected him as the President to get caste equations right before the Gujarat elections.

Congress has been discovering new lows in political discourse every day with their President, Rahul Gandhi leading the way. Following his footsteps, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot today made a shameful remark against the President of India, Ram Nath Kovind. Gehlot said that the Modi government elected him as the President to get caste equations right before the Gujarat elections. Gehlot said that the Modi government elected him as the President to get caste equations right before the Gujarat elections.

The casteist remark came when Ashok Gehlot was reportedly addressing the Media. The senior Congress leader said that Ram Nath Kovind was elected as the President over LK Advani, the BJP patriarch because the Modi government wanted to get the caste equation right before elections.

Ashok Gehlot said, “People say that the selection of Rashtrapati Ji, Ram Nath Kovind, infact I was reading an article yesterday that it was the time when Gujarat was ready to go under polls and they (BJP) was fearful that Congress will form its government in the state. At that time, one after the other, Amit Shah revealed his gimmicks. I believe that it was upon his advice that Ram Nath Kovind was appointed as President to fit in caste factor. And Advani Sahab was left. The nation was hoping that Advani Ji will finally be regarded with the honour he deserved. Deprived”.

Ram Nath Kovind was an accomplished lawyer before his entrance into politics. He practised law for 16 years in the Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court. Previously, he had served as the Governor of Bihar and was a Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha from 1994 to 2006. He has served on the Board of management of Dr B.R Ambedkar University, Lucknow, and as on the Board of Governors of IIM Calcutta. He has also represented India at the UN and addressed the United Nations General Assembly in October 2002.

President Kovind received the highest civilian honour of Croatia and the highest civilian honour of Bolivia, both in March 2019.

The Indian Media had taken a terribly elitist stand when President Kovind was elected saying that they had never heard of him and derided him in several ways. Many celebrity journalists had called him “worse than Pratibha Patil”. President Kovind, despite many of his accomplishments, has been branded as the “Dalit face of BJP” by many of the opposition members and journalists. Sadly, even the President of India is not out of limits for the elite Lutyens’ cabal, including the Congress party when it comes to playing petty politics.
