Ahmedabad: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Monday said that consensus on the nomination for the upcoming Presidential elections is needed by the political parties as the dignity of the post matters.
“We hope that this time, both National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and United Progressive Alliance (UPA) give a consensus on the nomination of next President. The country wishes for the same as the position of a President is the highest of all,” Ramdev told media here.
He further said that since the time of country’s first president Rajendra Prasad to the current, President Pranab Mukherjee, they all have maintained the dignity of the post.
“Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s governance, the significance of India has increased and world organisations have started to take India very seriously. Therefore, I think it is very important to have a mutual understanding on the name of the next President between the Opposition parties,” he asserted.
