Pranab's meeting on Bengal finances could impact his odds for President
Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, believed by many to be the front-runner among those vying to be the next President of the country, will have an exacting Monday. Mr Mukherjee is to meet the Finance Minister of West Bengal, Amit Mitra. The state wants Mr Mukherjee to indicate at the earliest whether it will waive 22,000 crores that Bengal owes as interest on loans from the centre.
