Prashant Kumar Kovind is the son of the 14th President of India, Mr. Ram Nath Kovind. The decision of NDA to project Ram Nath as the Presidential candidate had surprised many analysts and people started to look for more information about him. He has a very small family – with wife and two children. Apart from Prashant, Ram Nath Kovind has one daughter named Swati Kovind. It is quite natural that the status of Prashant Kumar has become like that of a celebrity. But, he remained a down to earth person. He has never used the status of his father as a senior BJP politician and later as a Governor. But, the situation is going to be changed now. He will live in the Raisina Hill and will be protected by the Presidential guard.
