Making a final pitch for Opposition unity ahead of the presidential elections slated for Monday, Congress president Sonia Gandhi said it is imperative upon all like-minded parties to join hands in combating the "communal and divisive" forces. However, she said, "Both of these are, sadly, under siege today". "I just want to ask her that on what basis, the Congress has nominated Gopalkrishna Gandhi for the post of the Vice-President". But the battle must be fought and fought hard.

Gandhi on Sunday called for a "conscience vote" while attacking the Narendra Modi government for trying to impose "narrow-minded, divisive and communal vision" on the country.

The political circles are agog with speculations that the name of Union minister for information and broadcasting M Venkaiah Naidu has been more or less finalised for the post of Vice-President of India.

"What at stake is our future, and the values we cherish and must uphold especially at this time of grave disquiet".

The electorate, which consists of elected Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members and members of state assemblies, is tilted in favour of the NDA, but the opposition has been continuously working to seek the support of some regional parties in favour of their candidate.

Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot said, "The Opposition candidates stand for the idea of India, equality, secularism, tolerance".

That way, one can speculate that Modi just might lean towards a Patel to mollify a voter-base from his home state that is now threatening to upset the equations at the upcoming Assembly elections.

As many as 17 non-NDA parties including the Congress, the Left parties, the TMC, BSP, SP, DMK, NCP, RJD, JMM JD-S and NC are supporting Kumar, while the JD (U) is supporting the NDA's nominee Ram Nath Kovind. The Vice-Presidential polls are slated for August 5.
