elected on the Congress partys watch: N Sanjiva Reddythe first president to be called upon to exercise presidential discretion in forming governments and dissolving Parliamentand APJ Abdul Kalamarguably our most popular and least assertive president For the restit is the Congress that has played the leading role in selecting the occupant of Rashtrapati Bhavan On one largely forgotten occasionthe roles were actually reversed as President S Radhakrishnan worked quietly behind the scenes to ensure that Indira Gandhi became prime ministerover the rival claims of Gulzarilal NandaMorarji Desai and YB Chavan It is another matter that relations between them later souredand she worked assiduously to ensure that he did not get a second termsponsoring the candidature of Zakir Husain instead The dramatic 1969 split in the Congress occurred over the nomination of a president to succeed Husain who had died in harness The victory of VV Girithe independent candidate Indira Gandhi chose to support over the official nominee of the Congressled to her expulsion from the party Giris successalong with her stunning victory in the Lok Sabha election of 1971contributed immensely to the consolidation of her power Two sets of considerations seem to operate when choosing a presidential candidateand they suggest competingeven slightly contradictorytendencies Firstthere is the assumption that the presidency is a largely ceremonial officea sinecure for senior politicians who are either to be rewarded with a nice retirement home orif inconvenientkicked upstairs It also provides an opportunity for minority tokenismand the two are sometimes happily combined On other occasionsminority tokenism may converge with immediate political interestsas in the case of Zail Singhs electionwhich was calculated to assuage Sikh sentiment at a time when Punjab was on the boiland simultaneously ensure an entirely biddable president The secondsomewhat contraryassumption is that the president is potentially powerful and may exercise an independent role in the case of a hung parliament This isthereforean office whose incumbent must be reliable Since at least 1967the first time Congress faced a reduced majority in Parliament and lost elections in many statesthe choice of the president has been influenced by a worry about the role of presidential discretion in government formation While Sanjiva Reddy was the first president to exercise such judgment in 1977this role has obviously been accentuated since 1989with three presidents R VenkataramanShankar Dayal Sharma and KR Narayanan having faced Lok Sabhas without clear or stable majorities The inauguration of the era of coalition governments has made the choice of a politically dependable president ever more compelling Pratibha Patils election was a good example of such an assurance of reliability combined with gender tokenism It is a measure of the cynicism that informs our public life that we have come to assume that pliability is the central criterion in the choice of a president Over timehoweverthe choosing of biddable presidents by the Congress has served to diminish the office itself Apart from the exercise of presidential powers in the case of a hung parliamentthere are at least four other areas where this is evident Firstthe question of presidential discretion goes beyond his or her role in government formation Three months into his presidencyRajendra Prasad who famously clashed with Jawaharlal Nehru on several issuesincluding the Hindu Code Bill wrote a note asking whether the Constitution envisaged situations in which the president may be called upon to act independently of ministersand what powers the president had with respect to appointments and the deployment of the armed forces Indira Gandhi hadthrough the 42nd Amendmentsought to curb presidential discretionbut Desais 44th Amendment countered itmaking it possible for the president to exercise some discretion and return bills for reconsideration In todays contextZail Singhs returning of the Postal Billauthorising the government to intercept mail seems quaintbut at the time it appeared as a significant exercise of this presidential power KR Narayanan used his presidential discretion to give speeches that were not submitted to the (NDA) government and were even impliedly critical of it Secondlythe Congresss use of presidential powers to apply Article 356 to declare the Presidents rule in the states has historically been a potent instrument in the hands of the Union government to unseat antagonistic state governments Thanks to the strengthening of Indian federalism and the Bommai judgmentthis has happily become virtually extinct FortunatelyFakhruddin Ali Ahmeds shameful cravenness in signing the ordinance imposing the national emergency in 1975 is not something that is likely to be repeated either Less happily obsoletethirdlyis the Westminster convention of weekly briefings of the president by the prime minister Nehru was punctilious in following this traditioneven when his relationship with Rajendra Prasad was at its nadir ApparentlyIndira Gandhi did likewisethough Operation Bluestar was not discussed with Zail Singh Todaywe know next to nothing about when and how often the prime minister briefs the president Certainlysuch visits are publicised only to give rise to wild speculation Finallythere is the all-important role of the president as the supreme commander of the armed forces President Patils silence through the recent controversy around the army chief stands in sharp contrast to President Radhakrishnans insistenceagainst Nehrus wisheson the sacking of defence minister VK Krishna Menon at the time of the China war In the most recent episode of civil-military tensionPresident Patil chose not to give her government sage counselspeaking only when the crisis had blown over and then rather feebly Providentially for the Congressits most assertive and combative

From being a SAD councillor to getting expelled from party winning as MLA from Atam Nagar as Independent and supporting SAD again and now fighting Lok Sabha polls as Independent Simarjit Singh Bains talks to Divya Goyal on various issues from his criminal background support to SAD and others Excerpts: How will you be a better or different MP for Ludhiana The major factor on which I am banking is being a local I will be available round the clock for Ludhiana residents I have spent 14 years here and will continue to work for people I am not going to enjoy palatial homes in Delhi like previous MPs How will you rate your performance as a councillor and an MLA My major achievement is that I have never differentiated people on the basis of area I have not only done work for people of my own area but anyone who comes to me for help According to me a right MP has to be like a pillow who is there for people 24×7 And I am confident enough to be a ‘pillow’ for Ludhiana residents What are your plans for industry in Ludhiana It is very unfortunate that MPs till now have only used industrialists for their benefit Neighbouring states provided tax exemptions and other facilities and thus all industries have shifted from here Instead of being a bridge between the Central and state governments MPs have only enjoyed their plum posts till now State and the Centre have only done cat fights blaming each other for industrial losses I will ensure that policies change and Ludhiana becomes a hot spot again Why should people of Ludhiana trust you and believe that you will not support SAD again I will refrain from using derogatory language for SAD here but in my heart I have taken a pledge never to look back again towards them I have spent two years in that den of corruption and only I know how relieved I am after leaving Akali Dal Now I will show what an MP can do for his constituency other than enjoying luxuries Tell us something about your new party which you talked about It will be a group of revolutionaries It will bring a revolution to clean corruption in the 2017 Assembly polls If elected will you support BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi if not SAD Neither Modi nor Akali Dal I will never support either of them I want to make this loud and clear It’s acceptable to me to sit alone as Independent in the Lok Sabha but I will never support the BJP or SAD What will you say about criminal cases pending against you especially the case of beating tehsildar Benipal in public in 2009 All cases till now were a part of conspiracy against me to finish my political career I have come out clean from all cases and only two are pending in the court As far as tehsildar G S Benipal case in concerned I reached the spot after 53 minutes of fight The verdict
