Pranab 'will give a new dimension to the Office'
Pranab Mukherjee's daughter Sharmistha has said her father would give a new dimension to the Office of President with his experience.

New Delhi: Pranab Mukherjee's daughter Sharmistha on 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 fulfilled 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.

"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 has begun at 11 am on Sunday and the result is likely to be out by 4 pm.

The Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) looks confident of its candidate Pranab Mukherjee's win by a huge margin, with major political parties supporting him.
