THE Opposition candidate in the July 18 presidential polls, Yashwant Sinha, held his first campaign strategy meeting on Wednesday at the NCP office here and said a “rubber-stamp president” will not work in the country.
Sinha will file his nomination for the presidential polls on June 27 and is most likely to begin campaigning from Jharkhand and Bihar. Talking to reporters, Sinha said the presidential election is not an individual battle but a fight for the issues facing the country.
“I am thankful to all the political parties that have given me the opportunity,” HE said.
The BJP-led Centre is moving on a road that is not good for the country, youngsters are suffering and now, the “joke” that the Government has played on unemployment with the “Agniveer” scheme for military recruitment, the entire country is up in arms, he said.
“The President’s post is extremely sensitive and I will not be under pressure from the government,” he said.
“We will be going to various places in the country to campaign.... We are formulating a strategy on that. I congratulate Droupadi Murmu, but this is not me against her -- this is an ideological contest. We should not have a rubber-stamp president in the country,” he said.
Leaders like K K Sharma (Nationalist Congress Party), Jairam Ramesh (Congress), Yogendra Shastri (Congress) and Sudheendra Kulkarni were present at the meeting on Wednesday.
