Jagdeep Dhankhar To Be NDA’s Vice-Presidential Candidate

New Delhi: Governor of West Bengal Jagdeep Dhankhar will be the vice-president candidate of India for the ruling NDA, BJP chief JP Nadda declared on Saturday. “After all considerations and consultations, we have decided to announce kisan putra (farmer’s son) Jagdeep Dhankhar as the BJP and NDA’s candidate for Vice President,” he said at a press conference. Nadda also added that he (Dhankhar) established himself as a “people’s Governor”.

According to sources, Dhankhar’s nomination is a big message to the Jat community, to which the Bengal Governor belongs. It is the Jat community in Western Uttar Pradesh that had backed the BJP even after the countrywide farmers’ protests against the now-scrapped farm laws.

The BJP parliamentary board meeting made the decision at its Delhi headquarters on Saturday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with several top leaders like Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan attended the meeting, reported NDTV.

“Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar Ji has excellent knowledge of our Constitution. He is also well-versed with legislative affairs. I am sure that he will be an outstanding Chair in the Rajya Sabha & guide the proceedings of the House with the aim of furthering national progress,” PM Narendra Modi tweeted.
