The ever unhappy allies TMC and Congress of the UPA alliance has a different view on the selection of Presidential Candidate as well. Mamata Banerjee has cleared her support for Dr APJ Kalam and even the NDA is indicating its interest towards Dr Kalam and Samajwadi Party Supremo seems to be supporting Mamata’s decision. Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee also stated that she would leave if the UPA thinks her party is a liability to the alliance.
Congress, on the other hand, is doing all it would take to make Pranab Mukherjee the President.
Well, out of the two candidates,Dr Kalam and Pranab Mukherjee, undoubtedly the position is much deserved by Dr Kalam whom one can trust as a President of deeds. He would never take decisions partially favouring any specific political party at the cost of national interest. But 2014 elections results are so predictable about an upcoming inconsistent government that Congress well not leave any stones unturned to make sure Pranab Mukherjee becomes the President to favour the Congress in situations of political crises. Anyways,it is Indian Politics and anytime a third name may emerge and become the President, to surprise the nation! 🙂
