Pranab declared UPA's candidate

A day after finance Minister pranab Mukherjee as announced as UPA’s presidential face, Mukherjee is emerging as the consensus candidate amid growing support cutting across political affiliations. Both the SP and BSP have assured their support to Mukherjee’s candidature. With former President APJ Abdul Kalam unlikely to enter the fray for presidency, news reports say BJP-led NDA could back the veteran Congress man, who shares an excellent equation with opposition leaders. In return, NDA could bargain for Vice-President’s post. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, yesterday, called Leaders of Opposition in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley, respectively, as well as senior BJP leader LK Advani to seek support for Mukherjee’s candidature. The process started when at a meeting on Friday evening at the Prime Minister's house, the UPA finally declared Pranab Mukherjee as its candidate for President of India. The suspense came to an end as Congress president Sonia Gandhi announced his candidature and appealed to all political parties to support him.
