Presentation Transcript

Slide1 l.jpg

<b>Hamid Ansari:</b> Apolitical, and with an excellent non-partisan record as Chairman of the Rajya Sabha, he could emerge as a consensus candidate across party lines. Only Congress could have a problem since he is seen as independent. \nText: India Today

<b>Pranab Mukherjee:</b> For Mukherjee, 76, Rashtrapati Bhavan is seen as a fitting end to a long and distinguished political journey that began over four decades ago. His name had come up in 2007 but Sonia Gandhi found a flattering excuse to keep him out of Rashtrapati Bhavan: he was praised as too useful to executive governance. \nText: India Today

<b>Karan singh:</b> A man of letters, the 80-year-old Rajya Sabha MP would perhaps make the perfect envoy. However, his royal status is always held against him, as it is seen as being non-representative of the aam admi. \nText: India Today

<b>Sam Pitroda:</b> Advisor to PM on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovation, Pitroda&#39;s ties with the Congress go back to the days when the late Rajiv Gandhi was Prime Minister. Pitroda is seen as the man responsible for India&#39;s technology and telecommunications revolution. His name began to emerge as a strong presidential candidate when he accompanied Rahul Gandhi on political rallies in Uttar Pradesh.

<b>Meira Kumar:</b> Five time Member of Parliament, she was elected unopposed as the first woman Speaker of Lok Sabha on 3 June 2009. Her track record has been excellent as a Congress worker as well as a diplomat. If the UPA II is looking for another woman president, she&#39;ll be the strongest contender for the post.

<b>Shivraj Patil:</b> Steadfast in his loyalty to Sonia, the Congress could decide to reward him with a stint in the 340-room Rashtrapati Bhavan. However, he may not be agreeable to Congress allies. Even last time, the Congress had to drop his name as the Left-UPA 1 allies-had raised objections and indicated Ansari as their choice. \nText: India Today
