HT Sangliana, the decorated former ‘Super cop of India’ who had a brilliant track record both in civil service and politics continues to be our choice for the next President of India. But should he be elected? We put that question to some of our readers and they all seemed to struggle with an answer. A student from Tura, the hometown of NCP leader PA Sangma said the former Lok Sabha Speaker should be given a chance. But when we asked the same question to a student from Mizoram University, she said Sangliana stands a better chance as Sangma will not get the support from Sonia Gandhi during his lifetime. Lastly, we asked a JNU student from Karnataka who said he wishes to see this time a person from Northeast who is recognizable and familiar face even in South India to be the commander-in-chief of the Indian Defence forces.
In the end we pulled the 10 best reasons for why HT Sangliana should be the President of India.

He should get the presidency purely on the basis of merit which is there in the open for all to see. All political parties should support him unanimously.
Here’s a brief look into the man of the moment
Born, brought up and educated in Mizoram, the move from the North East to Karnataka was a pretty drastic one. In fact there are stories that Sangliana hated the police force following a bitter experience when he was held and interrogated after being mistaken for a Mizo rebel. However, he probably put all that behind him when he joined the police service, or it is more likely that he joined the service to alter that image. (Read more at: Virtual Bangalore)
