President Election - Mulayam Singh maintains balanced postureEvery now and then you hear about discussions between various political parties and leaders about the next elections for the post of President. Of late, BJP became vocal but has later shown reluctance to come out clearly on the subject due to some resistance shown by a constituent of NDA. Congress has not come out clearly though there is a talk about Pranab Mukherjee or Hameed Ansari as possible candidates.
Mulayam Singh's role is crucial in view of numbers with him. But he has also not opened his cards but has given very balanced statements like a mature politician. The latest being that the selection of the President should not be based on whether he/she belongs to backward class, minority or scheduled caste community.
HamaraUP members, do you read something in this statement? Do you think it is an exhibition of a balanced view by a seasoned politician with a focus not made public?
