Presidential Election 2022: The election for the new President of the country will be held on 18 July. Counting of votes will take place on July 21. June 29 will be the last day of nomination and now only 10 days are left for this. Whether it is the ruling party or the opposition, the name of the candidate has not been finalized so far. The opposition was brainstorming on the names of NCP chief Sharad Pawar and National Conference president Farooq Abdullah, but both the leaders turned down the offer.

West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC President Mamata Banerjee is trying to unite the opposition on the presidential candidature. He had called a meeting of opposition parties in Delhi on June 15. Parties like Aam Aadmi Party, TRS of Telangana, BJD of Odisha, YSR Congress of Andhra Pradesh did not participate in this meeting of Mamta.

Sharad Pawar separates himself

After the meeting of the opposition parties, Mamta Banerjee, Sharad Pawar and several leaders of the opposition held a joint press conference. In this, Sharad Pawar, while denying his own candidature, said that soon the candidate will be announced by the opposition. At the same time, Mamta Banerjee had said that if Sharad Pawar is ready, then the entire opposition is ready to support him. In case of their refusal, other names will be considered.

On Sharad Pawar’s refusal, the name of former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah came to the fore. However he turned down the offer. The President of the National Conference issued a statement saying that I withdraw the idea of ​​my name as a possible joint opposition candidate for the post of President of India. I believe that Jammu and Kashmir is passing through a turning point and my efforts are needed to help navigate these uncertain times.

After the refusal of Sharad Pawar and Farooq Abdullah, the discussion of other names in the political corridor has intensified. Which are those names, let’s look at them.

Gopalkrishna Gandhi: Former West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi’s name has been in the race for candidature for many days and he is also running ahead. Gopalkrishna Gandhi is the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi. He has been an IAS officer. Gopalkrishna Gandhi was the joint Vice Presidential candidate from the opposition side in 2019 as well. However, he lost the election to the NDA’s Venkaiah Naidu.

Yashwant Sinha: The name of former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha is also being discussed a lot. Yashwant Sinha has been a veteran BJP leader and now he is in TMC.

NK Premachandran: NK Premachandran, MP from Kerala, has been a minister in the Government of Kerala. The reason for forwarding his name is to get the support of the political parties of South India. This is because the YSR Congress of Andhra Pradesh, the TRS of Telangana distanced themselves from the meeting called by Mamata Banerjee on June 15. If any one of these parties supports the NDA candidate, then the path of the opposition will be very difficult.

Sharad Pawar called a meeting

As the presidential election draws closer, differences between Mamata Banerjee and other opposition parties over the selection of a unanimous opposition candidate are likely to not attend the meeting called by Sharad Pawar on June 21. Will be Instead, she may depute her nephew and Trinamool national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee to participate.

Officially, the Trinamool leadership is saying that his absence at the meeting called by Pawar will most likely be due to his pre-scheduled appointment that day. A senior cabinet minister in West Bengal said, “In a meeting held at the Constitution Club on June 15, 2022, it was unanimously decided that Pawar would convene the next meeting of the opposition parties on the issue of Presidential election.

He said that although surprisingly there is no one in the invitation for the meeting to be held on June 21. The meeting held on June 15 referred to the decision taken on this issue. This is somewhat undermining the efforts of the Chief Minister, who took the first initiative of convening an opposition meeting on the issue.
