NDA presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind said today that if elected to the country's highest office, he would pay special attention on fulfilling the expectations of the youth.
Addressing BJP MPs and MLAs, Kovind said he would work as per the Constitution and his focus would also be on ensuring development of all the states and the nation as a whole.
Equality between the people of all castes and communities and promotion of modern education would be his priorities, he said.
Kovind arrived in Jaipur accompanied by Union Information and Broadcasting minister M Venkaiah Naidu and BJP MP Bhupendra Yadav.
Naidu said the presidential election was not a fight of principles, as claimed by the Opposition.
He said the NDA had considered Kovind's personality and leadership qualities and therefore had decided to choose him.
The minister claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah had made efforts to unanimously decide on the presidential candidate but the opposition parties did not give a satisfactory response.
