After failing to get Mr. Kalam to contest, and extending support to Mr. Sangma now, the BJP is fighting a losing battle just to show that it is in the presidential race. It is surprising that Mr. Sangma has resigned from the NCP to fulfil his presidential ambitions, banking on the support of a few political parties.

By deciding to support Mr. Sangma more out of compulsions than on principles, the BJP has lost its credibility. Even in the nomination of Mr. Sangma, the real credit should go to Jayalalithaa and Navin Patnaik as it is they who first proposed his name.
