Yashwant Sinha, who has served as India’s finance and foreign minister, had quit the BJP in 2018. He has been the vice president of the Trinamool Congress.

While the Opposition seems to be in a bit of a struggle to pick their candidate for the Presidential polls, the BJP is set to hold its parliamentary board meeting in Delhi on Tuesday where it is likely to finalise its nominee for the election slated to be held on July 18, sources said.

Sinha’s name was discussed by the opposition leaders on Monday. Former West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi had became the third proposed face, apart from NCP chief Sharad Pawar and National Conference president Farooq Abdullah, to decline the request of the joint Opposition.

Last week, Mamata Banerjee had been invited for a meeting with 22 non-BJP leaders in Delhi.

The NCP, Trinamool Congress and other opposition parties was held a meeting on June 15 to build a consensus to field its joint presidential candidate against the NDA for the July polls.

At Tuesday’s meeting, the AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi was also been invited and party’s Aurangabad MP was attended the meeting. He also thanked the NCP chief Sharad Pawar for the kind invitation.

The process is underway to elect a new president. It was started from June 15 and the last date for filing of nominations is June 29.

Priyanka Gandhi asks for how long will BJP keep blaming Congress

Priyanka Gandhi today addressed public rally in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand, where she asked BJP that for how long they will keep blaming Congress

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday responded to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s frequently made accusation that nothing happened in the country during the decades the grand-old party ruled, claiming the party is being responsible despite having been out of office for the last ten years

How long will you continue blaming Congress? Priyanka said, the Congress has not been in power for the last ten years, during a public rally in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand.

She said, the BJP has had a complete majority in government for the last 10 years, but they now claim that they want 400 paar, or an even larger majority. They claim that in 75 years, nothing has changed. Priyanka said, in Uttarakhand, the home of IITs, IIMs, and AIIMS, how have these capabilities grown if nothing has changed? Was it feasible that Chandrayaan landed on the moon if Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru hadn’t constructed these? she continued.

Priyanka criticised the Modi government for abandoning youth who put in a lot of effort to enlist in the Army, using the contentious Agniveer project as an example.

The Congress leader said, in his speech, Prime Minister Modi mentioned soldiers, but who introduced the Agniveer scheme? A sense of patriotism drives thousands of young people to dedicate years of their lives to enlisting in the army. They believe that by continuing in their work, they will support both their parents and the nation. But by introducing a plan like Agniveer, Modi ji broke the dreams of the youth, she claimed.

She further claimed that PM Modi and the BJP had abandoned Devbhoomi (Uttarakhand) after the  terrible disaster.

Priyanka took aim at the Prime Minister, by saying that he believes everyone is corrupt while he is not. They have forgotten about jobs and inflation because they are too preoccupied with using the ED, CBI, and IT to win over leaders to their party and overthrow the government. The question of accepting donations and conducting business came to light once the electoral bond was disclosed, she added.

Earlier this month, the Congress party presented its Nyay Patra, or Lok Sabha election manifesto. Among other things, it calls for a minimum support price (MSP) for farmers crops.
