Who are active to save UPA government is now known: Mamata
Regretting the cancellation of the Trinamool Congress sponsored no-confidence motion against the UPA government in Parliament, party supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said " It is now known who are active to save the UPA government."
Hours after rejection of the no-trust motion by Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, Ms Banerjee posted in Facebook- " Notwithstanding many high-sounding words by some political parties, it is now clear who all want to protect this government."
"Many political parties had protested the anti-people policies of the Centre, including FDI. We thought thy would extend their support to the no-confidence motion. Unfortunately, they did not come forward showing different excuses," she wrote.
" We were aware of our strength and the limitation. Despite that we wanted to move the no-trust motion on the very first day of the winter session. It was not admitted in the House because of absence of majority. Even as the motion was cancelled in Parliament, people of the country had not rejected it," Ms Banerjee posted.
Incidentally, confusing the Left in respect of her arch rivalry and playing a new political card, the Trinamool chief had announced on November 20 that her party would support a CPI(M) sponsored no-confidence motion, if moved against the UPA government, in Parliament.
Ms Banerjee had said that Trinamool was not averse to any such no-trust motion against the Manmohan Singh government, if moved by either CPI(M) or CPI.
' Let CPI(M) move a no-confidence motion against the Centre, or the CPI, we are ready to support it if the issues are same,' she had observed.
Leaving the Left leadership 'a bit uneasy,' Ms Banerjee also had said that she was ready to have discussion on the issue with the CPI(M) state secretary.
' If necessary, I am ready to have talks with Mr Biman Basu visiting the CPI(M) state headquarters at Alimuddin,' she had commented.
