Such a lot of shit is floating around this Presidential Election business. The dignity that surrounds the position of the Head of the State has been hit for a six, further that even Chris Gayle can’t imagine..
True, the names doing the rounds are those of some highly eminent persons, and Pranab Da most certainly fits the role to perfection.
He’ a stalwart in politics and between Abdul Kalam Azad and Pranab Do, I would back Pranab Babu 100%.
It’s such a shame that we politics is raising its ugly head in the election of the country’s top-most post.. It is part of our tradition that we must make those political noises, do as much as mud-slinging as possible and score those brownie points.
Even though Pranab Da wont have much say i how the government runs, I’m sure his valuable experience will be sought. Of course he will have to perform the ceremonial asks such taking the salute on Republic and Independence Day and other such occasions, but he will be keeping a close watch on the goings-on in Parliament.
He’s a man who swears by the Constitution and as the Constitutional head of State, he’s not one to take irrational decisions like setting 30 murderers pardoned from going to the gallows. Nor is he one to blow up the country’s money especially since he’s the one who pulled the plug on wasteful expenditure and brought about the much needed austerity drive.
Personally, I’m of the view that others vying for the top post ought to withdraw and let a man of high integrity, gifted with political acumen, and allow Pranab Da get elected.
Having said all that, I still can’t understand what the fuss is about?
