BJP's vice-presidential candidate from South India? Here are the possibilities

Former West Bengal governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi was announced as the Opposition's Vice Presidential candidate on Tuesday

Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice-President Rahul Gandhi cast their votes for the Presidential election on Monday. "We can not and must not let India be hostage to those who wish to impose upon it a narrow-minded, divisive and communal vision". The opposition feels Gandhi is an ideal candidate as he is the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi and C Rajagopalachari, the last governor general of India. "In such testing times, we have to unit and safeguard the values of secularism, inclusiveness and harmony", she added.

The interactive session, the sources say, will see Ms Kumar, the opposition's presidential nominee, and Gandhi, its vice presidential candidate, make their presentations before them. The Vice-President of India is the second-highest constitutional office in India, after the President. "In these contests, the numbers may be against us".

"This election represents a clash of ideas, a conflict of disparate values". At the Opposition leaders' meet here today, Sonia Gandhi appealed the lawmakers from the non-NDA camp to vote for Meria Kumar tomorrow.

Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu has unexpectedly emerged the top contender ahead of the BJP parliamentary board meeting to pick its vice-presidential candidate, according to newspaper report.

Toddler in Florida dies after being left in hot auto
The neighbor who spoke with 7News said, as a parent, she can relate to what the family is going through. "He had lots of energy". It was unclear how the child got into the auto , but he likely got in through the front door, she said. 'I'm scared for him'.

Gopal Gandhi has been described as a worthy successor to outgoing Vice President Hamid Ansari even though the Congress and other 17 parties do not have the required number of MPs in the electoral college to ensure his win.

On the other hand the opposition is essentially banking on Gopal Gandhi's stature hoping that the fence sitters like BJD's Naveen Patnaik who has backed the NDA candidate for President would find it hard to openly oppose him.

The electorate, comprising elected Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members and members of state assemblies, is tilted in favour of the NDA, but the opposition is still working to seek support of some regional parties in favour of their candidate.
