Is the right given to pardon death-sentences not put to question with such brutal killers being granted life ? President Patil has  set a record of  pardoning as high as 30 pleas in 28 months but the question remains – did they really deserve it ?

Who will make it to Rashtrapati Bhavan ?

PA Sangma, is so far, getting support from BJP , TMC , SAD ,BJD,AIADMK while Pranab Mukherjee , the contestant from UPA is getting JD(U) and Shiv Sena’s support and from Left parties (except for CPI). Pranab Mukherjee was initially making  a clean sweep after Dr Kalam had rejected to contest but PA Sangma has taken the risk of resigning his co-founded party-NCP, to contest for the post. This was yesterday when officially even BJP, the second biggest national party had not declared their support him ! Even Pranab Mukherjee has resigned from the Finance Minister’s post to contest for the Presidential Poll but  it looked  well-planned but PA Sangma’s candidature was indeed a shocker. He is contesting at the cost of losing his founded party and even risking her daughter’s ministerial position under the UPA government.
