The West Bengal BJP today said the Congress-led UPA's former ally Trinamool Congress's no-confidence motion against the Centre was a "secret deal" between the TMC and the Congress so that the UPA could survive the opposition attacks.

Addressing a press conference here, party's state unit president Rahul Sinha said, the Trinamool Congress and the Congress have cut a "secret deal" before the former's no-confidence motion against the Centre so that the UPA government could survive the opposition's protest against the entry of FDI in retail market, which was exposed at the yesterday's all-party meeting.

"At the all-party meeting, the TMC was asking for discussion on the FDI issue but did not want a debate under the Rule 184 which requires voting," he added.

He also said the Trinamool Congress's no-confidence motion against the Centre was a breather for UPA government for another six months.

Meanwhile, Mr Sinha said the BJP would organise a rally on Novermber 30 at Rani Rashmoni Avenue here in the city where Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj will be present.
