Raut reiterated that the Shiv Sena was keen on the candidature of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat or eminent agro-scientist MS Swaminathan for the President's post.
"The Congress has always taken the initiative to improve the condition of the Dalits even before the country got Independence. Opposition will meet on June 22, then only we can announce our decision", she added. "We will openly support".
Modi said Kovind would make an "exceptional" President and called him a strong voice for the poor and the marginalised communities. "This is a straight political tussle", he said.
The BJP-led NDA (including Sena) has total of 52 MPs. This seems a little impossible.

TMC's Chief National Spokesperson Derek O'Brian also took a jab at the NDA and mocked Kovind's virtually unknown status. "He is a Dalit leader and we hope he will continue work for the backward section of the society", he said.
