New Delhi, Jun 19 (UNI) Calling the BJP-NDA Presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind a farmer's son, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said he will make an exceptional President.

In another tweet, the Prime Minister said, "With his illustrious background in the legal arena, Shri Kovind's knowledge and understanding of the Constitution will benefit the nation." Mr Modi said Mr Kovind, who comes from a humble background has devoted his life to public service and worked for poor and marginalised.
