Almost 8 hours later presidential spokesperson, F. Babar, clarified that the authorities had taken steps for the release of another Indian prisoner named Surjeet Singh,who is in the same jail since 3 decades for mistakingly entering Pakistan and has been there for 5 years more than his punished duration and not Sarabjit Singh.

Was it Poor Communication between Pakistani Official that created confusion ?
It is astonishing that Pakistani President’s Office has completely taken a u-turn. Pakistani Media had been highlighting the release of Sarabjit and critics and extremist groups were also raising voice against this decision of the President.Probably that made the President’s Office name Surjit Singh to be the one to be released and not Sarabjit. And if this was some intentional decision of mocking at India, it is time Pakistan grows up ! Was it lack of Communication between Pakistani officials or Pakistan Government’s intentional mischief ? The biggest question over here is Surjit Singh has already spend 35 years in Pakistan Jail and that is 5 years more than the term he was supposed to serve.His release was anyways due and did not need any confirmation from Pakistani President’s Office. What made them announce Surjit Singh’s release ? What took the Pakistani Government almost 8 hours to rectify the Media Report about Sarabjit Singh’s release ? This act was either deliberate or a perfect u-turn after constant criticisms from extremist groups which scared the Pakistani President,Zardari .
26th June is the scheduled date for Pranab Mukherjee to resign from Finance Ministry. At a time when our economy is in a shaky state and INR is unstable and has reached its lowest all-time value of 57 , who would be handed over the responsibility ?
Raisina Hill is a locality of Delhi where many important government buildings are located and along with these is the President’s House – Rashtrapati Bhavan.
As of now there is no tough competition between the contenders : Pranab Mukherjee from UPA and P.A.Sangma from NDA. It seems that Pranab Mukherjee will win the race with more number of parties supporting him but the race of politics is like the race of the Hare and the Tortoise.Well, in this case the Hare is taking no chance of making any mistake or taking the race or the Tortoise,lightly ! 🙂
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.

Whosoever wins, out of the two, the one who will not, will really lose a lot !
Today, P A Sangma finally submitted his resignation to his party(National Congress Party) co-founder Sharad Pawar which has been accepted. Although he has taken a great risk by declaring to contest against UPA supported Pranab Mukherjee,as her daughter who is a serving minister in UPA government may be asked to quit the post and he himself quit NCP. BJP on the other hand knows NDA has parties like JD(U) and Shiv Sena who are backing Pranab Mukherjee and it would be tough to make Sangma win as the present status reveals UPA has better numbers favouring Pranab Mukherjee. It is upto BJP to give tough contest to Congress supporting Sangma, as he has the support of BJD and ADMK. TMC of UPA which has already declared they do not support Pranab can also be of help to Sangma. Whatever the result be , BJP being the biggest opposition ideally should put up a contest supporting Sangma !
As commoners all we can pray,may the deserving becomes the President of the country! 🙂

Nitish Kumar warns split if Modi be declared PM candidate for BJP-Nitish Kumar Vs Modi Cartoon
Shiv Sena’s willingness to support Congress led UPA candidate,Pranab Mukherjee,in the Presidential Poll is believed to have been motivated by Congress’ offer to keep Narayan Rane, once in Shiv Sena and now in Congress (hence a friend turned foe) in check and minimize his opportunity to become Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Even in the last Presidential Poll, the Sena had supported UPA candidate ,Pratibha Patil claiming she was Marathi. In return,Narayan Rane who was a major contender for Maharashtra’s Chief Minister’s post suddenly got sidelined. 🙂 . Well, thats what we call politics !
