New Delhi: If NDA has its way then Metro-man Sreedharan may well be the new President of India.

As reported by TOI there is a 'possibility that former Delhi Metro chief E Sreedharan could be in consideration even though the possibility of a non-political selection is remote.'

BJP has yet not come out with any name. Senior political leader M Venkaiah will be meeting Sharat Pawar also soon.

BJP senior leaders will also meet Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, today on Friday, and seek her suggestions as well.

BJP has not suggested any name so far, with party chief Amit Shah having said this will not be revealed prematurely.BJP also wants to talk to the Opposition and see what are their plans for the presidential candidate.

As a rule, says the Left, they will oppose any candidate who will be an NDA nominee.
