The presidential choice shows how powerful the left is.In fact if that was the case they could have had Somnatha Chatterjee as the best candidate rather than aunknown figure
Somnatha lost the chance due to various reasons he was really apolitical hevay weight who brought in alot of respect for the office of the speaker as well as to the Indaian Parliament
It would have been more politically correct to present Somnath as the candidate
Of course there will be lot of explanations about women empowerment and all trash
By nominating Pratibha patel itis not going to make any difference to the woman esply she is not that kind of aleader who has that kind of charisma.
