He suggested that all regional secular parties should come together and elect their leader, PTI reported. "Congress party will never hesitate to form a secular government," he said.

He added, "I suggest that regional parties should elect Mamata Banerjee, who is secular, competent and honest beyond doubt, as their leader," he said.
