New Delhi: Amid indications that the NDA and the Left may also support Pranab Mukherjee as the next President of India, the Congress on Friday officially appealed to all parties to support the veteran Congress leader.

Minutes after Congress president Sonia Gandhi announced Pranab Mukherjee’s name, party’s chief spokesperson Janardhan Dwivedi said, “Pranabji name has been declared as UPA candidate, we are very happy about it. “

“I believe Pranab was the most suitable candidate among all those names that were in the fray,” he said.
Pointing out that Sonia Gandhi has appealed to all political parties to support his candidature, he said, “We should hope that everybody will support Pranabji as President…it would be good if there is consensus on his name.”
