With the Bharatiya Janata Party [ Images ] announcing support to P A Sangma pitting him against UPA Presidential candidate Pranab Mukherjee [ Images ], the Trinamool Congress [ Images ] said its chief Mamata Banerjee [ Images ] was keeping a close watch and the party would take an 'appropriate decision at the appropriate time'.
"TMC has not taken any final decision as yet. Our party supremo Mamata Banerjee is keeping a close watch on the situation. She will take an appropriate decision at the appropriate time", party MP Kunal Ghosh told PTI without giving a direct reply.
He was asked whether TMC would support Sangma in the Presidential race or abstain from voting since former President A P J Abdul Kalam [ Images ], whom the TMC supremo wanted to contest, has already opted out.
Ghosh said that the Trinamool Congress parliamentary party and the legislature party has already authorised Mamata Banerjee to take a decision on the Presidential poll issue on behalf of the party.
