Mamata Banerjee has taken to Facebook to gather support for her ‘campaign’ for ABJ Abdul Kalam as President. On her official page on Facebook- the popular social networking website, Mamata has posted an appeal to people to support Kalam for President. The post she says is the first ever by her since she has logged on, where she has identified herself as a common man and a line reads, “I gave voice to what millions of Indians want to see in a President.” She used Rabindranath Thakur’s poem, ‘Where the mind is without fear’ to put her point across.
Mamata has been steady with her choice of Kalam as President even while SP has struck a deal with Congress to support Pranab Mukherjee. Kalam is a popular choice of the people too especially youth. Many online petitions, groups, fan pages have been dedicated lately to his candidature. This move can bring Mamata some love from the netizens finally as arrest of the Kolkata Professor for posting anti-Mamata cartoons on social networking websites did not go well with the citizens online.
