Cong hopes Mamata will accept Pranab's candidature

I stand by the position I have taken: Mamata

today expressed the hope that chief will accept the candidature of for the post of President like other partners who gave their nod.

"People give their candidature. After that whatever decision is taken with consensus everybody accepts it. Mamata is our very senior leader and we hope that she will also accept it. If everybody agrees, the whole coalition agrees then I think she will also agree," Union Minister and Congress leader told reporters.

Jaiswal's comments come at a time when Banerjee has reiterated her support to A P J Abdul Kalam for the top post.

In a posting on her Facebook page, Banerjee today said Kalam was TMC's choice as well as the choice of millions of Indians.

"I gave voice to what millions of Indians want to see in a President," she said.

Refusing to budge from her stand, she said, "My party is a small party. We are not a big party with none of the resources others possess. We are led by truth and conviction. All through my life I have stood by my principles. I stand by the position I have taken."

Mukherjee had yesterday made a personal appeal to Banerjee, saying he expected her support as she was like a sister to him.
