Doesn't President have any influence on so many elections all the time? why can't President do something about holding state and federal elections once every 5 years? He will complete 5 years soon and has nothing to his legacy, other than President is ceremonial in can't do much. We need someone like Seshan, who comes does something before his tenure is over and then goes away. The benefits are long lasting.
President might have limited power but if used judiciously those can be very effective. President can address joint session of parliament and can ask them to behave like what they are suppossed to.

Parliament is not supposed to be a place where people discuss trivial things like Kharge does.

Dada would retire and will go down in the history as someone who wanted everything without risking, it would have been risk to oppose sonia, so if given a chance to become PM he would have confronted, if sidelined, he is the honest party member.

Despite all fiasco, MMS had at least a tag of person who liberalized India in 1991, I don't think Dada will even have a place in Indian history 20 years from now
