It is unfortunate that the selection of the president of the biggest democracy in the world was decided in a few hours by the UPA and Left parties. The Congress chief says that this is a historic moment, because the party has decided on a woman candidate. All this while, the Congress floated the name of several candidates, among them Shivraj Patil. It was only when the Left played spoilsport that Pratibha Patil’s name came up.
