Congress' Vice-President Candidate - A Terrorist Sympathizer?

The Second Among Equals

The Second Among Equals

In a last-minute appeal ahead of Monday's presidential election, Congress President Sonia Gandhi called for "conscience vote" while attacking the Narendra Modi government for trying to impose "narrow-minded, divisive and communal vision" on the country. "We can not and must not let India be hostage to those who wish to impose upon it a narrow-minded, divisive and communal vision". She said the election represents a clash of ideas and conflict of disparate values. Mamata said, "We are voting for Meira Kumar because it's a vote against the atrocities of the Bharatiya Janata Party, violence in the name of cow vigilantism, interference in federal structure".

The JD (U) attended the meeting where Mr Gandhi was selected as the joint opposition vice presidential candidate.

The interactive session, the sources say, will see Ms Kumar, the opposition's presidential nominee, and Gandhi, its vice presidential candidate, make their presentations before them.

"We must stand more aware than ever of who we are, what we fought for in our Independence struggle and what future we want for ourselves".

While members of parliament were voting for presidential polls, a Shiv Sena leader expressed disappointment with UPA's decision to field Gopalkrishna Gandhi as the Vice Presidential candidate. "We must have confidence in the values we believe in". He is the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, a retired IAS officer, and diplomat, who earlier worked as the Governor of West Bengal.

Going by precedent the ruling party at the Centre has its nominee as President and the opposition invariably occupies the office of Vice President, who is the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.

The scrutiny will take place on the same day and the last date for withdrawing nomination is 21 July.
