The BJP has decided to support PA Sangma for President of India against Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee. The Opposition party says that the Prime Minister's request for their support for Mr Mukherjee came too late after a "unilateral" decision to field Mr Mukherjee. On June 15, the Congress declared Mr Mukherjee as the candidate of the coalition it leads, the UPA.
