Sonia Gandhi (PTI File Photo) Top News Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday held discussions with her one-time strong critic and NCP leader Sharad Pawar amid attem-pts to finalise a common presidential nominee from the Opposition Pawar drove down to 10 Janpath the residence of Gandhi in the evening and the two leaders were closetted for more than half an hour “They discussed the current political scenario in the country and the issue of putting up a common Opposition candidate for the upcoming Presidential elections” NCP general secretary Tariq Anwar told The Indian Express The meeting with Pawar is part of Gandhi’s exercise to bring together all the Opposition parties against the BJP In the past few days Gandhi has met Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury CPI leader D Raja and Sharad Yadav of the JD(U) She is also supposed to meet RJD chief Lalu Prasad DMK’s M K Stalin and National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah in the coming days She has had a telephone conversation with West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee Pawar’s meeting is significant in view of the history of bitterness between the two leaders that had kicked in after Pawar walked out of the Congress in 1999 on Gandhi’s foreign-origin issue a year after she took over as the party president Even after the NCP became a constituent of the Congress-led UPA and the two parties were in alliance in Maharashtra for 15 years Gandhi and Pawar rarely met since their parting of ways The last time Pawar visited 10 Janpath was in 2012 to sort out some differences in the then ruling alliance Pawar is known to have good political relations across parties He has however denied reports that he himself could run for President Only earlier in the day Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala had called upon all regional forces to come together to counter BJP “Hope all regional parties will now realise that blind anti-Congressism is not the way The country must come first in the battle of ideologies” Surjewala said For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top NewsUpdated: March 23 2014 11:38 pm Related News The BJP may have tamed many a loudmouth and motor mouth in its stable but it flinched when faced with Shotgun Sinha The party say sources had to give in to his demand for Patna Sahib seat despite a very negative report that an external agency commissioned by the party gave about his prospects The agency report had estimated “anti-incumbency index” of Sinha as “42 per cent” BJP sources said the party leadership gave in because they were apprehensive that irrepressible Sinha’s reaction to a change of seat may not exactly be “moderate or measured” and the party did not want yet another leader especially like Sinha to go public with his true feelings Sinha’s accommodation meant a big loss to senior leader Ravi Shankar Prasad who had got a very positive report about his candidature in the agency’s survey CALLING THE SHOTS Mohan Gopal director of the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Contemporary Studies seems to have got quite a few detractors in the Congress As Rahul Gandhi increasingly depends on him for intellectual and political inputs Gopal’s clout in the ruling party has also grown exponentially causing unease to a lot of ambitious associates of the Congress vice-president Grapevine has it that it was Gopal who was the real force behind V M Sudheeran’s recent appointment as Kerala Congress chief despite strong reservations by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and other senior leaders No wonder the party high command did not attach much importance to the sulking Chief Minister RUSH HOUR There was high drama at Jamnagar House on Saturday when Trinamool Congress’s New Delhi candidate Biswajit went to file his nomination papers He was all set when realisation dawned that the election account had not even been opened A mad scramble followed given that it was a half-day for banks Once that was done there was even more confusion because the film star who is a resident of Mumbai had apparently forgotten his voter I card there It was 15 minutes past the deadline when Biswajit came out and flashed a victory sign MANIFESTO MYSTERY Lok Sabha polls may just be a fortnight away but when the ruling Congress would release its manifesto continues to remain a suspense While March 21 was said to be slated as the release date as confirmed by a senior Union minister there was a delay and March 23 as a possible date started doing the rounds Delayed further March 25 came up as a speculative date but the latest and more probable date is now March 26 since party vice-president Rahul Gandhi is travelling to West Bengal for campaigning on March 25 It seems certain differences within the manifesto drafting committee as well as Rahul’s travel schedule have been causing the delay CAMPAIGN DIARY The dust and drudgery of an election campaign has not altered senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley’s habit of writing a blog/article everyday for his website/social media platforms Though he made it a daily practice from the comfort of being a Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha he has started writing ‘campaign diary’ for social media on a daily basis even from his hectic election schedule He is using it to rebut the questions of his constituency rivals and also comment on national issues He has however not yet disclosed his special fondness for Amritsari chhole-kulche and whether the rigour and heat of campaigning is keeping him away from it CAUTIOUS IN VARANASI Though party’s prime ministerial candidate has yet not landed in Varanasi after the declaration of his candidature from that seat party is keen not to ruffle the feathers of conservatives in
