Yeddyurappa has praised Pranab Mukherjee considering him best suited for the President’s post and also requested his own party supported candidate, P A Sangma to accept defeat and avoid going to Supreme Court to appeal against Pranab Mukherjee.Interestingly, BJP has been left red-faced after there has been cross-voting from Karnataka in favour of Pranab ! Is this Yeddyurappa’s way of showing discontentment towards his own party ? By the way, Who may be the cross voters ? 😉
P.A.Sangma who lost to Pranab Mukherjee by a huge margin, in the Presidential Election may decide to knock the doors Of Supreme Court against Pranab Mukherjee’s election as President. Sangma and team had accused Pranab of holding an office of profit , as the chairman of Indian Statistical Institute while filing nomination for Presidential Candidature. They had objected his candidature and complained to the Election Panel which rejected Sangma’s plea after Pranab produced his resignation dated 20th June, accepted by ISI.Coming Wednesday, Sangma and team will hold a meeting where appealing to the court against Pranab would be an agenda of discussion.
Pranab Mukherjee is the 13th President of India and that is the sole-truth of the moment above any allegations, assumptions and political calculations! He has proved his worth as troubleshooter of the Congress by securing for himself a place from where UPA government has high chances of enjoying immunity till his tenure,in case, 2014 General Elections give any mixed result.
After TMC declaration to support Pranab Mukherjee and TMC Ministers attending the UPA lunch it seems NDA’s Presidential and Vice-Presidential Candidates , P A Sangma and Jaswant Singh ,respectively, are fighting a lost battle with almost zero hope of win !
While,P A Sangma who was assured about TMC’s support has declared he has no complaints with Mamata Banerjee not supporting him,it seems like the last nail in the coffin and NDA candidates clearly having no chance to win .
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! 🙂
