Kolkata: A final decision on Congress joining the new government in West Bengal at the invitation of ally Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, will be taken
by the party high command, senior Congress leader Pranab
Mukherjee said on Sunday.

"We will take a final decision after discussions with
the Congress High Command. The decision will be disclosed at
the appropriate time," Mukherjee told a press conference.

He, however, said the Congress would extend all support
to the new government.

"I congratulate Mamata Banerjee for this fantastic win.
It is a very big achievement to defeat CPI(M) within just 13
years of forming her party. It is her victory," the Union

"The people have shown faith in her and we hope that she
will bring about fiscal restructuring, peace and uphold
democratic norms in the next five years and we will cooperate
with her through all means," he said.
