    Ralegan Siddhi, Ahmednagar:
    Did the Congress offer the post of President of India to anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare? Yes, if the rumours floating around in this village are to be believed.

    As per reports, Thursday, rumours are rife that Anna has been offered the post of President by the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government as the term of the incumbent, Pratibha Patil, is due to end next year.

    What has fuelled the speculation is the steady stream of politicians, especially form the Congress, who are making their way to the village to meet the Gandhian. Among those who have paid a visit to Anna Hazare were Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat, Ahmednagar MP Bhausaheb Waghchaure, former PWD minister Vijaysinh Mohite-Patil among others.


    Moreover, a vernacular daily had reported that some senior leaders of the Congress had held a meeting in Delhi after the stupendous response Anna garnered during his fast at Ramleela Maidan over the Jan Lokpal Bill. The leaders after discussing the emerging scenario had actively pursued the idea of making Anna Hazare a resident of Rashtrapati Bhavan.

    Although the veracity of the story is yet to be ascertained, however, the activists associated with the India against Corruption initiative and others close to Anna have rubbished the speculation, saying that he won’t accept any such offer.


    Ralegan Siddhi Sarpanch Jaysingh Mapari was quoted as saying by a newspaper that he was confident Hazare would not "fall prey" to any offer of the kind. "Hazare knows the ministers very well after his two big stirs. I don't think any Union minister shall dare make such an offer," he said.

    He is too much of an idealist to be given an executive post. He will harass the living daylights out of the legislature.

    President doesn't play very important role. They are mostly puppet. NO to Anna Hazare.

    May be Kalam could be better choice, as he can take care for defence too due to his long experience.

    With his previous stance on corrupt officials to be hanged, I think he would be the best President we have ever had. With his moral authority his hanging of these terrorist will not harm the country. I don't understand why the President takes so much time to give their decision on death sentences? If they are going to hang the person eventually why delay it?

    President is not a powerful entity. They are for state visits and photo sessions..

    We always choose the retired 60+ ones or minority, scheduled ones who goes arund the world like snails with ridiculous smiles in the middle of world leaders.

    The only leader commanded respect was Kalam.

    I am still having issues with seeing shankar dayal sharma moving like a person who just got discharged from old age home in world stages.

    If its a rubber stamp , make atleast a good one.

    A president must be EDUCATED experienced and accomplished in Public Life

    My wish is to see Pranab Mukherjee or Narayan Murthy even A B Vajpayee but he is very old and unwell

    Anna Hazare is just 8 th PASS

    Secondly Anna Hazare is only interested in social work He has devoted his life to improving the conditions in Villages

    He is a MORAL FORCE for bringing about positive change in the rural areas

    And he is totally committed to anti Corruption movement

    So It will look like he is being BRIBED to stay away from Anti Corruption movement

    I want somebody who has served as national security adviser to be the President. Not some old IITian or a businessman and also not so old ones who cant move.

    Maybe Shiv SHankar Menon likes or Brijesh Mishra types.

    Shiv Shankar Menon will Not accept this powerless post
    His National Security advisor job gives him more pleasure
    He loves being in the thick of action

    Brijesh Mishra being an active member of the BJP , is ruled out

    Anyway i dont see the idea working..

    Presidents post is a retirement scheme or a projection scheme to show the world "see we have a dalit president, see we have a woman president..". Nobody heard about the current one before.

    K R Narayanan was the dalit face

    kalam was a scientist and an affirmation of India's Nuclear status

    Pratibha patil was the women's quota

    A president HAS ALSO to be an Insider in the Ruling Coalition

    The UPA will have the Electoral college in its pocket So we will see a LOYALIST of the Gandhi family

    But he /she must be articulate enough NOT Dumb like the current president

    Ratan Tata has to look after his 3 Lakh crore empire and is also looking for a successor
    Gavaskar is happy milking BCCI and various news channels

    So they will turn down the request
