Former Delhi Metro chief E Sreedharan as NDA’s nominee for Presidential poll?

The outreach came even as speculation continued about the NDA’s likely choice with a news website suggesting that former Delhi Metro chief E Sreedharan could be in consideration even though the possibility of a non-political selection is remote.

NEW DELHI: BJP negotiators reached out to NCP chief Sharad Pawar and TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu over the presidential poll in a bid to enlarge a consensus over an NDA nominee.

The outreach came even as speculation continued about the NDA's likely choice with a news website suggesting that former Delhi Metro chief E Sreedharan could be in consideration even though the possibility of a non-political selection is remote.

BJP has not suggested any name so far, with party chief Amit Shah having said this will not be revealed prematurely.

AICC spokesperson Anand Sharma said, "Congress has tried to bring about a consensus on every important issue. But the picture is not yet clear on the issue of the presidential election."
