As track records suggest that Pranab Mukherjee, who is pro-establishment man as always for Congress or presently where he is right now, would leave the ambitious Modi and his team with an advantage,’’ a top State Congress leader said.

Incidentally, after demonetization, after a massive victory in Uttar Pradesh Assembly to choosing Yogi Adityanath as UP Chief Minister, a man without any experience, “Modi may still go for experiments and may want no trouble from Office of President and Pranab Mukherjee for second term suits the agenda,’’ added another top state Congress leader, “in fact it was a mistake for Congress to make him a neutral man for he would have helped the party as political manager in crisis,’’ he added.

Certainly, Modi doesn’t want a S Radhakrishnan, who after Chinese debacle asked either `Nehru or his Defence Minister Menon to quit (please see Himalayan Blunder by Brigadier Dalvi, Allied Publishers, Delhi). “And S Radhakrishnan wasn’t a soft man who created political trouble for first Indian Prime Minister,’’ agreed a Political Science Professor, Calcutta University.

Pranab Mukherjee owing to his long political career has been friendly to leaders of several political party leaders and a shrewd man who knows which way the wind is blowing and how to toe the line.
Of course, some top but veteran leader of BJP may be the next choice, “but political ambition happens to be infectious and a bad word for another man in power,’’ adds the Professor, saying, “it may not bring peace for ambitious Modi.’’
