|13th President of India, Pranab Mukherjee|
Though there was a popular momentum form the public in support of the former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam as the New President, as the number of political parties supporting him were apparently less, he opted out of the presidential race. This has increased the chance of Mr Pranab to get in to the highest office of India.
West Bengal chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who is remaining as a coalition partner in the UPA government and constantly creating trouble to the United Progressive Alliance government and dictates the UPA in even minute matters, tried to gather some support to a candidate against the wish of the UPA...but tragically failed to get any party...! The humiliated Mamata who is isolated end abandoned even by Mulayam Singh Yadav is planning to keep away from the Presidential voting...!
There are reports coming form some sources that there is a strong feeling in the UPA II to remove the defiant TNC from the alliance unable to bear any more relationship with her...!
