Trinamool Congress on Tuesday said, it has not yet decided which way to vote when UPA government seeks a vote of confidence in Lok Sabha.

Asked which way the party would vote in case a confidence or no-trust motion was moved in Parliament, TC chief Mamata Banerjee said, her party has not yet decided on it. The party would discuss it before it spelt out its stand, she added.

On whether she would tie up with NDA in case a no-confidence motion was moved, Banerjee said TC was maintaining equidistance from both Congress and BJP.

To a question whether she would attend the NDA meeting, Banerjee said she had not been attending them for the past two years.

On her party's stand on nuclear deal, the TC supremo said, the sense of parliament was not taken and deliberations was mainly confined to UPA and the Left.

She said, it was wrong on the part of Congress to have taken the support of CPI(M).

"It was Congress which catapulted CPI-M leaders to national prominence. It is good that the Left is getting cornered in national politics because of its double standards", the Trinamool Congress chief said.
