New Delhi: A stunned Congress on Wednesday night said it was for a consensus on the Presidential candidate and indicated that it will reach out to more parties to muster the required numbers.
Party General Secretary Digvijay Singh said that "our effort is for consensus".
"Mamataji is UPA`s partner. We are discussing with everyone and after a consensus, we will decided on a name."
Party sources said that Trinamool Congress and Samajwadi Party were not not the only parties Congress would look to for support to the Presidential nominee.
