JMM, which has five members in Lok Sabha, on Saturday made it clear that it would support the government's confidence vote in Parliament.
"We are with the UPA," party's chief whip Teklal Mahato told reporters in New Delhi ahead of the parliamentary party meeting which will finalise its stand on the July 22 trust vote.
He denied any division in the party over the issue of support and said party chief Shibu Soren will take the final decision soon.
Asked about reports that NDA had offered Jharkhand chief ministership to Soren, Teklal Mahato said, "if he has to become chief minister, it should be on a UPA offer."
The parliamentary party will meet this evening to take the final call.
