New Delhi: With the BJP winning a landslide victory in the recent Assembly elections in four other states, including Uttar Pradesh, this year’s Presidential and Vice-Presidential elections were claimed to be a mere formality for the BJP. However, the Opposition does not want to give any walkover to the BJP in this election. Therefore, the Opposition has come up with a special strategy to stop the BJP, which is preparing to field a joint candidate in the Presidential and Vice-Presidential elections.

A senior Congress leader said that his party and other opposition parties were ready to field their candidate against the BJP-led Raloa candidate in the forthcoming presidential election. Opposition parties will also decide on the NDA’s presidential and vice-presidential candidates. Elections for the post of President of India will be held in July and for the post of Vice President in August.

In the 2017 presidential election, the Congress-led opposition had fielded former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar. But he had to accept defeat from Ramnath Kovind. In the vice-presidential election, the NDA’s M. Opposition parties had fielded Gopal Krishna Gandhi against Venkaiah Naidu, but he too was defeated. Given the strength of the current Presidential and Vice Presidential elections, it is difficult to get a candidate from the Opposition.

The BJP has 9,000 less votes than the total 5,49,452 votes required to be elected President. But BJD and YSR Congress are the parties that can fill the gap. It is also difficult for the Congress to choose a name that would be acceptable to all opposition parties. In the last few years, only the ruling party and the opposition have agreed on the name of APJ Abdul Kalam in the presidential election. However, the Left parties had fielded Captain Lakshmi Sehgal against him.

Meanwhile, the senior Congress leader said that the BJP had fielded Bhairosingh Shekhawat against Pratibha Patil in 2007 and PA Sangma against Pranab Mukherjee in 2012.
