For this, Mamta Banerjee has put forward the names of Gopal Krishna Gandhi and Farooq Abdullah.
On June 21, these Parties will meet once again and try to come to an agreement on a final name. Mamta Banerjee said that all the parties will support only one candidate. All the parties have decided that the opposition will have a common candidate for the upcoming presidential elections. This candidate will work to protect the constitution and prevent the Modi government from destroying the constitution.
The leaders of 17 political parties attended this meeting of Mamta Banerjee, and all agreed to make a strong leader a candidate against the NDA candidate.
TMC, Congress, CPI, CPI(M), CPIML, RSP, Shiv Sena, NCP, RJD, SP, National Conference, PDP, JD(S), DMK, RLD, IUML, and JMM – parties attended the meeting. The TRS, which opened a front against the Modi government, did not send any of its representatives to this meeting, nor did anyone from the Aam Aadmi Party attend this meeting.
Mamta Banerjee has proposed the names of former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah and Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Gopalkrishna Gandhi as presidential candidates. However, Gopal Krishna Gandhi has not commented on his candidature yet.
Farooq Abdullah Vs Arif Mohammad Khan?
Actually, it is believed that BJP can send a Muslim to Rashtrapati Bhavan this time. In this, the name of Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan is being mentioned at the forefront. If the BJP plays bets on any Muslim face, then the opposition can stamp the name of Farooq Abdullah. As soon as Farooq Abdullah’s name surfaced on social media, the IT cell started campaigning against him.
Does the opposition candidate ever win?
Although the candidate of the ruling party always becomes the President, in the year 1969, the candidate of the opposition won the election. This happened because the vote of the people of the ruling party was divided into two candidates. This time it is believed that if the entire opposition votes in favor of one candidate and the vote are not divided, then the opposition can be successful in winning its candidate.
But it seems difficult for the opposition to unite. It is believed that some opposition parties may support the BJP. But still this time the contest seems to be interesting.
If the opposition candidate wins the election, it can be a big problem for the BJP.
The next presidential election in India is to be held on July 18, the results of which will be declared on July 21.
