FORMER GOVERNOR GOPALKRISHNA GANDHI ON OPPOSITION PARTIES HUNT FOR PRESIDENT POST :

Former administrator, diplomat and Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi  said that Opposition leaders have reached out to him with a proposal to field him as the joint Opposition candidate for the forthcoming Presidential elections. Gandhi is the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi. Yes, I have been spoken to. But the conversations have been of a very preliminary nature. It would not be right for me to say anything beyond that, Gandhi told The Indian Express. Sources in the Opposition said a broad consensus is emerging on two names: Gandhi and that of former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar. But many Opposition parties are not keen on a Congress nominee as the presidential candidate. The Rediff.com : 11th. May,17
