She has asked all her party MPs, MLAs to be present in Kolkata for the Presidential election on July 19.
``Mamata said that the final decision on the party stand will be taken three days before the polling date``, Trinamool Congress leaders Sudip Bandopadhyay and Sultan Ahmed (both unions ministers of state), said after a meeting of party MPs, MLAs and councillors, presided over by Mamata Banerjee.
``She has asked all TMC MPs and MLAs to be present in Kolkata on the polling date on July 19``, they said.
Asked if the Trinamool Congress will participate in the presidential election, they said ``May be. But the decision will only be taken three days before the election``.
Mamata Banerjee told the meeting that Trinamool Congress ``is a 100 per cent disciplined party and what one or two say, does not matter``.
