BJP to meet Sonia over Presidential election

IANS  |  New Delhi 

A three-member committee formed to evolve a consensus on India's new President will call on President here on Friday, informed sources said on Wednesday.

This will be followed by the panel's meeting with CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, the sources said.

The three members of the committee are union ministers Rajnath Singh, M. Venkaiah Naidu and Arun Jaitley.

When Naidu on Wednesday spoke to BSP leader Satish Chandra Mishra and NCP leader Praful Patel over phone, he was told that the two parties will firm up their stand only after the Bharatiya Janata Party panel meets them formally.

Earlier in the day, Rajnath Singh and Naidu met Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
