‘Let Cong name an all acceptable Prez candidate’
Ranchi: Senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh on Sunday said the post of President should be kept above religion and caste and let the ruling Congress-led alliance propose a candidate accepted to all political parties.
"The post of President is the highest constitutional office and should stay above caste, religion and all other things. The ruling Congress party should propose a candidate, who can be accepted by all political parties, the ruling and the opposition," Singh said at a press conference here.
Asked whether Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee was acceptable to the BJP, Singh said "Let the Congress propose its candidate then we will decide."
