New Delhi, June 14, 2017: Bollywood’s shot-gun star and BJP senior leader Shatrughan Sinha on Tuesday batted in favour of party’s patriarch L.K. Advani for the post of next President of India by saying that he most richly deserves for the post.

Sinha said in series of tweets said: 

He said that he is strongly echoing the views of Advani’s admirers and well-wishers.

Sinha said:

Claiming Advani has never been given any chance to show the country and the world what he could have done, he said that he often think how the most deserving Prime Ministerial candidate has been ruthlessly side-lined from playing his role.

Advani along with Murali Manohar Joshi and Union Minister Uma Bharti has been charged with criminal conspiracy in Babri demolition case.

The process for electing India’s 13th President will be set in motion formally from today when the Election Commission issues a notification paving the way for the filing of nominations for the July 17 contest in which the ruling NDA seems to have an edge.

The last date for filing of nominations is June 28. Scrutiny will follow on June 29 and the last date for withdrawal is July 1. The vote count will be on July 20, four days before incumbent Pranab Mukherjee’s term ends. The new President is set to take charge the next day.
