His tweets come after BJP chief Amit Shah had constituted a three-member committee for talks with alliance partners and opposition on the issue.
The three-member panel includes Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Information and Broadcasting minister M Venkaiah Naidu and Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
They have been tasked with holding talks to evolve a consensus with other political parties, which are likely to field their own presidential candidate.
