Shocking Story – When Somnath Chatterjee could not become President because of Prakash Karat’s objection to his candidature

It was in 2007 when I was the Lok Sabha Speaker, Sharad Yadav [Janata Dal-United] met me. They wanted me to be the candidate for the presidential election. I came to know that he was sent to me by the Congress leadership. But Mr. Karat turned down the proposal. If it was not for his objection, I would have become President then as the BJP decided not to put up any candidate.
