Prez poll drama: MoS PMO meets Pranab
New Delhi: In the backdrop of Trinamool Congress and SP countering Congress with three names for Presidential race, Minister of State in the PMO V Narayanaswamy met Pranab Mukherjee here late on Wednesday night.
There was no official word from either Mukherjee or Narayanaswamy on what transpired at the nearly 15-minute meeting held at Mukherjee`s Talkatora Road residence.
Narayanaswamy did not speak to mediapersons present outside Mukherjee`s house.
Earlier in the day, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi named Mukherjee as her party`s first choice for Presidential poll but Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee and SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav came up with the names of former President A P J Abdul Kalam, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee as their candidates for President`s post.
