Congress today said the party will decide its floor strategy after consulting its pre-poll ally Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantric) a few hours before Chief Minister Shibu Soren seeks trust vote on Monday.

"We invited JVM-P legislative party leader Pradeep Yadav on Sunday to discuss about their party's stand on the trust vote. But he could not tell, as his party president Babulal Marandi is out of station," Congress legislative party leader Rajendra Prasad Singh said.

"Therefore, we have convened another meeting on Monday at 9 am to discuss on it," Singh said.

He was replying to a query whether the Congress would vote against the JMM government when Chief Minister Shibu Soren seeks the trust vote.

Last week, the JVM-P leadership said their legislators would vote against the Soren government.

The Congress has 14 MLAs, while the JVM-P has 11 in the 82-member assembly.
