RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat says he is not in the Presidential race. With President Pranab Mukherjee’s term drawing to a close, BJP ally Shiv Sena had proposed Bhagwat’s names to the the Narendra Modi government.

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said Bhagwat in the country’s top post, would usher in a ‘Hindu Rashtra’.

“It is the highest post in the country. Somebody with a clean image should occupy it. We have heard Mohan Bhagwat’s name is being discussed for President.

“If India has to be made a ‘Hindu Rashtra’, Bhagwat will be a good choice for President. But the decision (to support his candidature) will be taken by Uddhavji,” he told reporters.

Bhagwat, however, said today he was not in the running.
