My father will give new dimension to office of president: Pranab's daughter
New Delhi, July 22 (IANS) Pranab Mukherjee's daughter Sharmistha Sunday said her father would give a new dimension to the office of president of India with his experience and his personal rapport with political leaders that cut across party lines.
"I think he has done justice to the offices he has held. He has fullfilled his duties and responsibilities to the best of his ability in whatever he has done. I'm sure he will give a new dimension to the office of the president of India," she told a TV channel here.
"I think over all these years, he has developed excellent personal rapport - cutting across party lines. Whatever the opposition might say, but personally they hold him in high esteem. I think that definitely helps.. his stature... his ability to build consensus, all these things will definitely help," Sharmistha said.
The counting of votes for the Presidential election will begin at 11 a.m. Sunday and the result is likely to be out by 4 p.m.
