Kolkata: A crucial meeting of the Trinamool Congress's parliamentary party slated to take "hard decisions" in response to the UPA government's dual decisions of diesel price hike and FDI in retail began on Tuesday.

The meeting, attended by all Trinamool members of the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha along with senior party leaders and ministers of the state cabinet, is being held at the historic Town Hall auditorium.

West Bengal Chief Minister and party supremo Mamata Banerjee, who has already reached the venue, will discuss various options with party leaders at the meeting.

Banerjee on Saturday warned that her party planned to take a "hard decision" if the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government did not roll back the twin decisions of FDI in retail  and diesel price hike within 72 hours.

The deadline ended on Monday without any rollback.
