Indicating that the Trinamool Congress is still undecided over the choice of candidate for the Presidential poll, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said she has not spoken to anyone over the issue as yet.

“I did not speak to anyone. I am going to Delhi. When I am in Delhi, I meet everyone because I was a member of Parliament for 25 years,” she told reporters when asked if she would discuss the Presidential poll issue in Delhi.

The Trinamool chief is going to the capital to attend a meeting of Chief Ministers on the National Counter-Terrorism Centre issue.

She said she would meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi during her stay in Delhi.

Asked if she would discuss Presidential election with Ms. Gandhi, she said,” I have not met her for a long time and I will enquire after her well being since she was not keeping well. I have got a personal relationship with her.”

Congress sources had earlier said her meeting with Ms. Gandhi was billed for May 3, 2012 when the two leaders are likely to discuss the Presidential poll issue.
