New Delhi: Fissures in Trinamool Congress emerged on Monday over supporting former president Dr APJ Abdul Kalam and opposing Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee for Presidency, reports say.
There are strong reservations within a section of Trinamool over opposing Mukherjee’s candidature, reports suggest adding that the voices could choose to hide behind the cloak of the secret ballot.
Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee, who first floated Kalam’s name for Presidency, has maintained that her party remains firm on backing Kalam.
Banerjee will issue whip asking her party MPs to vote for Kalam, reports say.
Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee has convened a meeting of Party MPs on Monday.
