First time we have a president who does not 'belong' to any political party. However he might have his closer relationship with some parties or individuals which do not make him a political person. All the past presidents have had political lineage. This is one very important reason as well as opportunity for him to change the system in the long and sustaining interest of the nation and its citizens. It seems that he is not convinced of certain decisions of the parliament; hence he is returning the bill/s to them for reconsideration and for amendments. But the parliament returns as such to him and constitutionally he has to give his stamp. Let him stand on his own and change this system come what may. If he is convinced, he should resign and join hands for raising the voice of citizens. After all he is the First Citizen of India.
