Yashwant Sinha is the opposition’s presidential candidate

The time is approaching for the election of the President of India, the highest office in the country. The presidential election is scheduled for July 18. In this order all parties focused on the presidential election itself. Opposition parties have stated they will not run in the by-elections. But it’s not set. With the resignation of everyone proposed it became a headache for the leaders of the opposition parties. It is learned that NCP chief Sharad Pawar and National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah have already expressed reluctance. Recently, Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Gopalakrishna Gandhi politely rejected the opposition’s request to contest for the presidency.

With this, while the opposition was looking for a new candidate, the name of former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha came to the fore. Yashwant Sinha is likely to announce his name at a meeting hosted by Sharad Pawar with the opposition on Tuesday. Yashwant left the BJP before the West Bengal elections last year and joined the Trinamool Congress. A senior TMC leader said Sinha had already received support from some parties and Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee was also in favor of his candidature. Sinha, a former IAS officer, made his political debut through the Janata Dal in 1984 and later joined the BJP. He currently serves as Vice President of TMC.
