Presidential poll: strategy after U.P. polls

New Delhi: CPI(M) general secretary Prakash Karat will not hazard a guess who his party will support for the post of President and whether Speaker Somnath Chatterjee is a probable candidate.

"As far as a second term is concerned, I recall that last time the BJP had argued that no person should be given a second term and that is why they would not support K.R. Narayanan. They had said that since Dr. Rajendra Prasad, nobody was given a second term. I wonder what argument they would give now,'' he said in an interview to PTI.

He was asked whether the CPI (M) would favour a second term for incumbent A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. On the party's strategy , he said: "Our party will be discussing the Presidential election soon after the Uttar Pradesh elections are over.''
