Promise to dada

June 04 2012

Pranab Mukherjee met Sonia Gandhi and made it clear that he will not contest the next Lok Sabha elections. In a way, Pranab has clearly put pressure on 10, Janpath, that he be made the President. Or that Manmohan Singh be made the President, and he be made the prime minister. For now, Sonia Gandhi is camping in Bageshwar in Uttarakhand, to stay away from the heat wave in Delhi and will return in a day or two. Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi are also staying away from the Delhi heat and are in Europe. Sonia does want to see Manmohan Singh as the President but with the fruition of the plan that Rahul Gandhi take over as the prime minister. Which means that there is still speculation about the Presidential candidate from the UPA – the list is made up of the same old names – Pranab Mukherjee, Meira Kumar and Hamid Ansari.
