Kirnahar (WB): Abhijit Mukherjee, son of UPA presidential candidate Pranab Mukherjee, on Saturday appealed to all political parties, including Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, to support his father in the presidential election.

"As a son I am seeking support from all including Mamata Banerjee for my father in the presidential poll," Mukherjee, who was waiting here to receive his father, told.

He said that it was not the first time that he was making the appeal. "I had made such an appeal earlier also and as a son I think I should seek support for him. I am not making this appeal as a Congress leader or MLA."
