Besides presiding over the party's core committee meeting, he will hold talks with office bearers, district presidents and general secretaries, among others.
The 71-year-old said after filing his nomination papers that he had ceased to belong to any political party after he became governor of Bihar in 2015.
Kovind is likely to file his papers on June 23, BJP president Amit Shah said after a nearly two-hour meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Board.
"Amit Shah and his party's eyes are on mid-term polls in Maharashtra. But instead of mid-term poll results, we are worried about what will happen in Kashmir and in violence-hit Darjeeling," the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana'.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah will attend the meeting.
According to a source in the Shiv Sena, Shah told Thackeray that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would decide the NDA's candidate for the highest constitutional post.
Dattatreya, who holds labour portfolio had on May 31 in Mumbai conceded that the growth of the economy was not translating into more employment.
"India and Pakistan will continue to play at international tournaments but neither India plays in Pakistan nor Pakistan plays in India," Shah, who heads the Gujarat Cricket Association, said, a day ahead of the clash between the arch rivals in the Champions Trophy final in England.
The BJP chief's upcoming meeting with Thackeray assumes significance as Shiv Sena has threatened to take an "independent stand" in the presidential election and also in wake of the ongoing war of words between allies over issues like farm loan waiver and the possibility of snap polls in Maharashtra.
Shah also said the Congress was not rooted in any ideology or principles and was sort of a "special purpose vehicle" to secure freedom.

Accompanied by a bike rally organised by party workers, he later proceeded to a government guest house here. During his stay in Kochi, Shah would attend a meeting of the BJP state core committee before the state NDA meeting and meeting with bishops as part of efforts to win over a section of Christians in the state.
He will be reaching out to the people and educating them about the welfare schemes started in last three years by the central government.
The minimum support price (MSP) paid to farmers for their crops is now 43 per cent more than the cost of production if the cost of land is excluded from price calculation, he told PTI in an interview here.
The BJP president will be present at Ravidas Ashram, under New Delhi Parliamentary constituency, to listen to the prime minister's monthly radio address to the nation on Sunday, 11 AM, said party vice president and Delhi unit in- charge Shyam Jaju.
Shah said he was confident about his his party maintaining its overall sweep of northern and western India, while substantially boosting its numbers in the North-East and southern states, besides West Bengal.
The saffron tally of 282 seats in 2014 was unprecedented but Shah expressed confidence that the BJP would surpass it in 2019 on the back of a better performance in states like West Bengal, Kerala, Telangana and Odisha where it had won few seats in the last polls.
Noting that he has a list of 106 schemes launched by the NDA government since it came to power at the Centre three years ago, Shah said a scheme was launched almost every 15 days.
The BJP is leaving no stone unturned to woo Tamil actor Rajinikanth who has dropped strong hints of joining politics in recent days. After Union minister Nitin Gadkari, BJP chief Amit Shah has welcomed the southern superstar to join the party ranks.
BJP president Amit Shah today kicked off his three-day visit to Telangana, exuding confidence that the party would come to power in the new state in days to come.
In his inaugural address at a national workshop for party's spokespersons drawn from across the country, he said the government has worked a lot to uplift and empower the poor, Dalits and the backwards and it was now the spokespersons' job to reach out to the masses with this.
"The mandate of the national capital is the nation's mandate. It establishes once again that the people of India are firmly with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It is their stamp of approval on the Modi government's works," he said.
BJP leaders said Shah expressed concern over the tense situation in J&K and said the Centre and the party were committed to bringing peace in the state.
The visit assumes significance in view of the deteriorating security condition in the state and tension between coalition partners--the BJP and the PDP--following certain remarks made by some BJP leaders and a minister.
