Sushma Swaraj's name is reportedly on the top of the list of possible NDA candidates for the upcoming Presidential elections to take place in July. Sushma Swaraj is a Member of Parliament from Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh and is currently the Minister of External Affairs (MEA) in the Modi government. She has been exemplary in her role as the Foreign Minister and has been extremely active for helping Indians throughout the world.
The BJP Parliamentary board is set to meet at 12 PM today and it is believed that the Presidential candidates name would be finalized during the meeting. Other prominent names that made headlines were that of Mr. Sreedharan, the Metro Man of India. NDA ally Shiv Sena had also proposed the name of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat but Bhagwat had refused to take up the first citizen's position. It is believed that Narendra Modi government wants a politically active President to take up India's cause in front of the world and if this is the consideration then there is no better natural choice than Sushma Swaraj.
The opposition parties have not yet declared any candidate and quite possibly if Sushma Swaraj is declared as the NDA candidate, most of the opposition parties might support her candidature.
However, the final news is yet to come around noon today.
