Antony meets MK on Presidential election

Antony told reporters that he would convey the DMK leader's views on the issue to Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

Congress leader and Defence Minister A K Antony met DMK chief M Karunanidhi in Chennai on Sunday as part of consultation process among UPA allies on the Presidential election to arrive at a consensus leader to succeed incumbent Pratibha Patil, who is retiring on July 25.

After more than an hour-long meeting, Antony told reporters that he would convey the DMK leader's views on the issue to Congress President Sonia Gandhi.  Antony's meeting with Karunanidhi comes close on the heels of Agriculture Minister and NCP leader Sharad Pawar's consultation with the Congress President a few days ago. Pawar was understood to have urged the Congress chief on the need for a consensus on the choice.(SSNS)
