New Delhi, June 13: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Wednesday met Congress president Sonia Gandhi to discuss who would be the United Progressive Alliance’s choice for the president.
Banerjee, who met Gandhi at her 10 Janpath residence, is expected to put forward her list of favourites for the job. The meeting is considered to be crucial, given the fact that the Trinamool Congress is a key ally of the UPA.
The presidential elections will be held on July 19. The last date for filing nominations for the post is June 30.
