Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Sunday said the presidential poll is a fight against "narrow-minded communal vision". The interaction between the opposition lawmakers and the candidates for president and vice president's post took place on Sunday evening - hours before today's Presidential elections. Apart from Congress lawmakers - among whom was former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh -- leaders from 16 other Opposition parties attended the meet. The gathering included NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Former Prime Minister H D Devegowda, BSP's Satish Mishra and Samajwadi party's Ram Gopal Yadav. Jharkhand Mukti Morcha chief Shibu Soren, too, made a rare public appearance. Left leaders Sitaram Yechury and D Raja too were present and so was Derek O'Brien and Prof Sugata Bose of the Trinamool Congress.
