P. A. Sangma today moved the Supreme Court challenging the election of Congress leader Pranab Mukherjee as the President of India.

The petition filed by Sangma has contended that Mukherjee was holding an office of profit as Chairman of the Indian Statistical Institute when he entered the race for President.

BJP leader and senior advocate Satpal Jain, who was Sangma’s campaign in-charge during the Presidential election said the petition has sought a direction for setting aside Mukherjee’s election as the President.

In his petition, Sangma has sought that Mukherjee’s election should be set aside and in his place he should be elected unopposed as the President.
