The indication from the Opposition side is that there will be a candidate against the BJP's nominee.

"When they have not given any names, then where is the question of consensus".

After exchange of views with the grand old party cadre, Naidu and Singh held discussion with Communist Party of India (Marxist) leaders Sitraram Yechury, Prakash Karat and Brinda Karat. They said the government wants our cooperation.

The latest developments came on a day the government reached out to senior opposition leaders to generate consensus.

Meanwhile, another CPI leader D. Raja said, "We have not proposed any name nor they have".

"The only thing I would like to say is that we expected that before taking the final decision on a candidate, they will come back to us and other opposition parties".

The parliamentary board of the BJP met here today to discuss the upcoming Presidential election. "There is no question of consensus", he said. First off, the objective is to get president and vice-president who come from RSS. It is a move to appease these sections, which are increasingly feel alienated under the ruling dispensation. "But that they did not convey.they will take some time to do that".

But Modi ruled out any such possibility.

The BJP has given no indication so far as to who its candidate is, but there is speculation around the names of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan. "If we want to make India a "Hindu Rashtra", then Bhagwat is our first choice". We said, please tell us your suggestions as the ruling party. At that point, neither did the Congress hold any such consultations with other parties, nor with its own leadership. Except for RJD President Lalu Prasad, who said that there should be "no ideological compromise", nobody backed Yechury. "And why should they?"

The BJP's traditional support base is among upper-caste Hindus but the party has sought to broaden its appeal, winning a landslide victory in a state election in Uttar Pradesh in March with the backing of many low-caste voters.

Kalam was a surprise candidate in 2002 for a greater consensus, but the changed scenario in 2017 gives the BJP more manoeuvring space to pick candidate from among its leaders.

He said the meetings with opposition parties was a formality.

The tenure of incumbent President Pranab Mukherjee ends on July 24.

Union minister M. Venkaiah Naidu, who spoke to SP's Ramgopal Yadav and Naresh Agarwal, was told that the BJP should opt for a political person as its nominee.
