NRN the next President?

Mr Narayana Murthy as our next President? Well, this blog, named Mutiny, is suggesting some rumors to the effect.

If indeed true, how sad will this be. I’d rather have NRN inducted as a minister, so that he gets a functional role in shaping our policy. With due respect to some great men who have been the Supreme Commander, what good are our Presidents for? If you ask me, we dont really need them, Supreme Court judges will fill in just fine.

Remember how Narsimha Rao drafted an apolitical person as our Finance Minister back in 1991 and that move changed the destiny of our country. Mr Manmohan Singh, can you try do the same with NRN and help shape our destiny yet again?

    Fully agree… it would be very sad to see NRN become the president. He should become a functional minister.

    I disagree, I think he would be better as a President. As a minister he would come under attack from other politicians and can’t do anything without cabinet approval.

    Jacob – but that way, he will at least have a chance at doing something meaningful. With middle class growing to be a reasonable size vote bank now, he could be seen as an asset by some parties (congress?)
