Former Speaker of Lok Sabha and an aspirant for President of India's post P A Sangma on Monday met Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu and sought the party's support for his candidature in presidential election.

"I have sought the support and blessings of Chandrababu Naidu, who is one of the most prominent political leaders of the country. He told me that he would take a decision after discussing the issue with the TDP's politburo," Sangma told newsmen after the 30-minute meeting.
