Sangma says he is in fray

Even as the UPA announced Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee as its candidate for Presidential elections, former Lok Sabha speaker P A Sangma ignored advice from his party – NCP and  asserted that he is the fray.

"I am in fray as a tribal candidate, not as an NCP candidate," Sangma, he told reporters here.

NCP General Secretary D P Tripathi met Sangma and told him that the party will support the UPA candidate, suggesting that he opt out of the race.  BJP leader L K Advani said he will take a decision on sangma after consulting his party and  NDA.
