Today both Pranab Mukherjee and P.A.Sangma filed their nomination papers for the Prsidential Poll ! With almost all parties declaring their support to either of these two candidates, it is clear that Pranab Mukherjee is more likely to be the President. However, the twist in the tale remain intact with TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee not disclosing her preferred candidate out of the two contestants. She was supporting Dr Kalam to be the President who declined to contest and Ms Banerjee is now left with PA Sangma as the only option, as she has been against Pranab Mukherjee’s candidature.

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.
