Prez poll: Mamata Banerjee convenes meet of party MPs
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, who continues to bat for APJ Abdul Kalam as Presidential choice, has convened a meeting of Party MPs on Monday. The meet is likely to discuss the Presidential poll.
Former speaker PA Sangma, who projects himself as a Presdential candidate had called Banerjee. Banerjee reportedly told Sangma that he should withdraw from the Presidential race if Kalam finally contests.
The Trinamool chief, yesterday, smacked the use of “money power” and “back-room dealings” in the Presidential poll.
On her latest post on Presidential poll in Facebook the West Bengal Chief Minister said, “It is most unfortunate that politics in our great nation has become murky and values, public interest have been compromised through the use of money, power and scams. Ethical and principled politics has eroded today”.
Banerjee debuted in facebook on Saturday supporting Kalam’s candidature for Presidency.
