Congress and BJP as well as NDA and UPA do not have the required majority to elect a candidate of their choice for the post of President. They need to take support of other regional parties who will determine who will win.
This situation gives sleepless nights to leaders of the Congress and the BJP.

Let us start with the BJP side of the ledger, if only because it is a bit simpler than untangling the Congress's side.
