Jethmalani may join presidential raceJune 16th, 2012 - 10:50 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 16 (IANS) Former law minister and Bharatiya Janata Party’s Rajya Sabha member Ram Jethmalani Saturday opposed union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee’s candidature for the July 19 presidential poll and said he may contest the election himself.
“I might contest in the presidential election… I will decide in the next two or three days. I want to oppose Pranab’s candidature as he hasn’t revealed names of black money holders in foreign banks,” Jethmalani told IANS over phone.
Mukherjee was Friday named the United Progressive Alliance’s candidate for the presidential poll and most of the UPA constituents and supporting parties have pledged their support for him.
