Bengali food with low oil, spice for President Pranab: Wife

New Delhi: Just as the UPA announced Pranab Mukherjee as their candidate for President's post, congratulatory messages flooded from all over. But Pranab's family which usually prefers to stay away from the limelight chose to come out in open and express its happiness.

While son Abhijeet Mukherjee appealed to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to accept Pranab as the Presidential candidate on the basis of being a fellow Bengali, his wife Suvra Mukherjee in a press interaction said Pranab deserved to be the candidate and she was extremely happy with his nomination.

When journalists asked her what will she cook for President Pranab she beamed and said, "Only Bengali food with low oil and spice".
