Kolkata: Indicating that the Trinamool Congress is still undecided
over the choice of candidate for the presidential poll, West Bengal
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said she has not spoken to anyone
over the issue as yet.
"I did not speak to anyone. I am going to Delhi. When I am in Delhi, I
meet everyone because I was a member of Parliament for 25 years," she
told reporters when asked if she would discuss the presidential poll
issue in Delhi.
The TMC supremo is going to the capital to attend a meeting of chief
ministers on NCTC.
She said she would meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi with whom she
had a good rapport.
Asked if she would discuss presidential election with Gandhi, she
said," I have not met her for a long time and I will enquire after her
well being since she was not keeping well. I have got a personal
relationship with her."
Congress sources had earlier said her meeting with Sonia Gandhi was
billed for May three when the two leaders are likely to discuss the
presidential poll issue.
