TMC to move no-confidence motion against UPA, seeks help from Left

TMC

"Let them support our motion. And, if necessary they themselves can bring a no-confidence motion which we will support. But there should not be any backdoor deal to save the government," Banerjee said. Asked whether TMC has established contacts with other parties before deciding to bring no-confidence motion, she said "We are doing this through the local and national media.

Referring to the controversial land acquisition bill, she said "No opinion was sought on the land bill."

Mamata's no-confidence motion will collapse: Shakeel Ahmed

Interpreting Trinamool Congress' decision to bring a no-confidence motion against the UPA as amounting "coming closer" to the BJP, the Congress today said the motion would fall through under the weight of 305 MPs.

"A 19-member party like Trinamool Congress announcing to bring no-confidence motion shows its closeness not only to the BJP, but also to the CPI(M), but it will be defeated by 305 members," AICC spokesman Shakeel Ahmed told reporters here.

Counting up the support of the RJD, SP, BSP and Janata Dal (Secular) in defeating the motion, he said, "The required number is 272, but the UPA has the support of 305 members. The government will complete its full tenure."

However, the AICC spokesman saw a positive side to the announcement: "The positive part of Mamata's announcement is that she will never again say that Congress is the B team of the CPI(M)."

Trinamool Congress yesterday announced that it would bring a no-confidence motion against the UPA government during the winter session of Parliament to protest against FDI in retail and corruption issues.
