Govt. is confident to discuss any issue according to parliamentary rules: Congress
With the opposition threatening to corner the UPA Government on a host of issues during upcoming winter session of Parliament, the Congress Party on Sunday said the government is ready to face any motion and discuss all issues according to parliamentary rules.
Reacting to West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) president Mamata Banerjee's plan to bring a no-confidence motion against the government, Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi said: "At least 50 MPs (Member of Parliament) are required to bring a no-confidence motion. If she wants, and it is very difficult without the support of communal forces. But, we are ready to face and discuss any motion."
"We want the Parliament to function properly and according to parliamentary rules any member of the house or any political party may raise any issue and bring any motion, we are ready to discuss that," said Alvi.
Asked about whether is there any possibility of early elections in backdrop of Samajwadi Party (SP)'s move to announce the first list of its candidates for the next general elections, Alvi reiterated that the government is going to function till the end of its tenure and elections will be held on proper time.
Mamata Banerjee has said that TMC is going to bring the no-confidence motion on the first day of the Winter Session and she appealed to all the political parties including archrival CPM and CPI to support the motion.
