With signs of the trust vote becoming a close call, leaders of Left parties, BSP and UNPA are meeting on Sunday to discuss the possible scenario if the government falls, including a change of guard with BSP supremo Mayawati as the Prime Minister.

After a meeting CPI(M) leader Prakash Karat, TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu said that the leaders would discuss "all possibilities" including a BSP-led third front government with Left support.

When asked as interim measure whether he would accept Mayawati as the Prime Minister, Naidu said "why should we be against it. We are not averse to it. But we have to discuss all these issues."

During the day, the TDP leader met CPI General Secretary AB Bardhan and Mayawati to mobilise support against the UPA government.

"We are working on a joint strategy to oppose the nuclear deal," Naidu said after meeting Mayawati.
