Prime Minister Narendra Modi met today with the most senior leaders from his party, including BJP chief Amit Shah. The agenda was focused on deciding the ruling party's choice for the next President of India. An announcement is likely later today, said sources. Left leader Sitaram Yechury has said that if the government does not name its candidate by tomorrow, the opposition will share its nominee, which would force an election.
