Opposition-backed Presidential nominee P A Sangma today said his daughter and NCP MP Agatha Sangma will vote as per her "conscience" in the July 19 election to the country's highest Constitutional office.
"She (Agatha) is a member of parliament for the second term. She is very matured person. She will take her own decision," Sangma told reporters after meeting BJP MLAs and ministers in Goa as part of his campaign for the Presidential election.
Agatha continues to be the union minister even after the senior Sangma resigned from NCP over contesting the July 19 election. The Sharad
Pawar-led party had asked the former Lok Sabha Speaker to refrain from contesting the poll as the party had announced its support for UPA nominee Pranab
When asked whether he has received any response from TMC chief Mamata Banerjee on her support to his candidature, Sangma said he was still awaiting her response.
"In Trinamool Congress, Mamata only decides...Let's wait," he added.
