BJP Tries to get support from opposition parties for the unanimous selection of President Candidate as a part of which the 3-membered-committee which includes Arun Jaitley, Rajnath Singh, and Venkaiah Naidu is going to meet Congress President Sonia Gandhi and CPM General Secretary, Seetaram Echuri. Present President Pranab Mukherjee's tenure ends on 24th July. UPA also formed a committee with 10 members and announced to support NDA if their candidate is undisputed. Though Sumitra Mahajan and Dhavar Chand Gehlat names came out in president and vice president race, a new name can come in the way suddenly, says BJP sources. Elections will be held on 17th July if opposition parties won't support NDA candidate and the results will be announced on 20th July as per the schedule.
