Mukherjee renews appeal to TMC

Presidential hopeful Pranab Mukherjee on Friday renewed his appeal to Trinamool Congress legislators to help him win the race for Raisina Hill. During his interaction with legislators from the North East in Guwahati on Friday, he said that AIUDF and BPF have already backed him and that he appealed to those parties who have not taken any decision to consider his candidature. He hoped that TMC would vote him.

Amid a simmering controversy over his nomination papers, Mukherjee declined make any comment on his rival candidate and former Lok Sabha speaker P A Sangma.
