July 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 169

P. A. Sangma is an Indian politician who has been announced as the president candidate for July 2012 president election of India by the opposing parties including Bharatiya Janata Party. He represented the Tura constituency in the West Garo Hills districts of Meghalaya as the member of the legislative assembly. Pranab Mukherjee has a dominating hand in the Congress party of India and his weight could not be under estimated. He had held various high profile ministries and this has given him good experience, name and fame.

Sangma who is 65 years old is one of the senior politicians of the northeastern states of India. He has bachelors' degree in honors and masters' degree in international relations and also a degree in law. He entered politics in 1973 and from the year 1975 to 1980, he served as the General Secretary of the Pradesh Congress Committee of Meghalaya. He became the member of the 6th Lok Sabha of Meghalaya for the first time in 1977 and continued to be a member of the same until 14th Lok Sabha except 9th Lok Sabha. He also served as the chief minister of the state from 1988 to 1990.

Pranab Mukherjee is also highly educated and has degree in politics and law and after a series of jobs as clerk, teacher and journalist he entered active politics in 1969. He is seen to be a more experienced man than Sangma both in terms of age and positions held. He served as the minister of many high profile ministries including finance ministry, ministry of external affairs and ministry of defense.

Sangma was closer to Sharad Pawar and Tariq Anwar in the late nineties and later he started the Nationalist Trinamool Congress after a split in the NCP. He belongs to the backward tribal community and this is given much prominence in his presidential candidature. Many regional parties including AIADMK and BJD support him. He has good experience both in national level and state level politics.

Pranab Mukherjee is expected to be stronger than Sangma in the election as he belongs to the ruling party. He is supported by UPA, BSP, CPI (M) and Shiv Sena party but Mamata party who is present in UPA is supporting Sangma and this is a minus point for him. But on the whole it is expected that he would have a total strength of 56% in the elections.

When speaking about Sangma's personal life, he has a son and a daughter both involved in political arena. His daughter was elected as the member of Lok Sabha of Meghalaya and got the prestige of being the youngest minister of the state. His son is Conrad Sangma and is the leader of the opposition in Meghalaya Legislative Assembly. Pranab Mukherjee has two sons and a daughter. His son Abhijit Mukherjee is the member of the legislative assembly of West Bengal. Both these candidates have clean hands and so the war is expected to be tough.
