The BJP leader said that Kalam was made the President not because of his religion but because of his contribution as a scientist. Patil’s statement raised eyebrows because Kalam became the President in July 2002 when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Prime Minister of the country. On this, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Saturday said that making Kalam President was Vajpayee’s “masterstroke”. Maharashtra Congress spokesperson Atul Londhe also criticized Patil for this statement.
