Asked about former President APJ Abdul Kalam's candidature, the NCP leader said that he felt that the former President will not enter the fray. "Kalam has been President once. He will not take such a risk," Sangma said. Earlier, NCP General Secretary DP Tripathi met Sangma and told him that the party will support the UPA candidate in the presidential poll, suggesting that he opt out of the race. The development came a day after NCP leader Sharad Pawar met Congress President Sonia Gandhi and amid indications that the presidential election could become a keen affair with TMC leader Mamata Banerjee pitching for Kalam.
