Farooq Abdullah declines to contest Presidential polls; Gopalkrishna Gandhi front-runner to be Oppn choice for now
It leaves Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, as the front-runner to become the opposition’s choice for the top poll. The opposition parties will hold their second meeting to finalise the candidate on Tuesday in the national capital. It is learnt that Abdullah’s withdrawal could be linked to indications from Gandhi that he would accept the candidature only as a consensus choice of the anti-BJP bloc. Pawar has already declined to be the joint candidate.
