New Delhi: In a major announcement, the opposition parties named former finance minister Yashwant Sinha as the common presidential election candidate on Tuesday.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh announced the name of Yashwant Sinha for the upcoming presidential election that will take place on July 18th.

According to norms, a consensus candidate of the government and the opposition should be elected for the highest office of the Republic. However, the initiative for this should have been taken by the government.

In a statement, the opposition said that “We regret the fact that the Modi Government made no serious efforts in this direction. We, therefore, appeal to the BJP and its allies to support the candidature of Sinha so that the nation can have a worthy Rashtrapati elected unopposed,”.

NCP Chief Sharad Pawar confirmed that they will file the nomination for the upcoming Presidential election on the 27th of June.
