Maya’s Kovind Connection

July 26 2017

What is a relation between Mayawati’s resignation from Rajya Sabha and Ram Nath Kovind’s elevation as President of India? Kovind is the first Dalit from North India, to be taking the highest position in the country. Earlier Dalit President KR Narayanan was from South India and had a negligible impact on Mayawati’s politics. BJP’s massive victory in UP was because of Dalits who voted for the party in hordes. RSS and BJP, which has always been christened by the opposition as anti-Dalit, have in fact in a thanksgiving gesture selected Kovind but also made inroads in Mayawati’s Dalit constituency. The action might resonate in coming elections in Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, and Gujarat.
