The race for the Presidential elections finally seems to be over with the nomination of Pranab Mukherjee as the candidate from the UPA. His is likely to get support from the Samajadi Party as well as the NDA alliance paving is way to the the country’s highest post. Former President, Abdul Kalam, who has declared that unless there is clear majority, he would not contest, will finally opt out of the race, clearing the way for Pranab Mukherjee. However, BJP may play seek the UPA support for its candidate for the post of Vice President, if the NDA extends support to Pranab this time. The highest post of the country has now become a political game, isn’t it?
