Yashwant Sinha Selected As Joint Opposition Candidate For Presidential Polls

New Delhi: Former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha has been selected as the joint Opposition candidate for the upcoming presidential polls.

Earlier in the day, he had quit Trinamool Congress, saying it was time for him to work for a larger national cause.

Yashwant Sinha, a former bureaucrat who remained a minister in BJP regimes, had joined West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress last year.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had called a meeting of 17 Opposition parties on June 15 to build consensus for a joint presidential candidate against the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

With numbers on its side, the NDA is expected to ensure the victory of its candidate in the presidential elections.
