No hesitation to support Left-sponsored no-trust move: Mamata
Last Updated : 20 Nov 2012 03:44:58 PM IST
Mamata willing to back CPM No-trust motion


Willing to mend bridges with her arch foes,West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata banerjee said she has no objection if Left sponsors no-trust motion.


“We have no ego issues. Even if the CPI(M) moves a no-confidence motion we will support it. This is why we are appealing all parties to think hard about whether they want UPA2 to continue. If Congress can speak to to the BJP, then even TMC can speak to anyone from the Left,” she said.

She has also volunteered to back a no confidence motion if the CPM introduces one in Parliament.

The BJP refused to divulge its stand  after meeting over Mamata Banerjee's no-confidence motion call as the party  would consult NDA allies before  announcing the decision.

"My appeal to the CPI-M is not to do anything to bail out this minority government which is steeped in corruption and which has taken many anti-people decisions," she said.She further said, "If they have reservation about our party sponsoring the motion, let the CPI-M bring it, we will support, provided there is assurance that they will not withdraw it midway striking a deal with Congress. If the issue is same, there is no objection to support their motion".

  To a question on BJP vis-a-vis the proposed no-trust motion of her party, she said, "Let them decide. They have to take a stand."

Apparently hitting out at the Congress and the CPI-M for floating "BJP fear psychosis", she said, "BJP is a political party whose ideology we do not support. Every party has his own ideology. We have our ideology but this is not a religious issue. This is an issue which involves saving the country.

BJP's decison on no-confidence motion

On the contrary BJP said  they have taken a decision but  won’t say until it talks with NDA allies. NDA  will meet at 5pm

Party spokesperson and MP Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters that the party had decided on what course of action to take with regards to the no-confidence motion that has been proposed by one-time ally Mamata Banerjee.

“However, we still have to discuss it with the NDA allies. We are meeting with our NDA allies this evening after which we will inform you of our decision,” he said.

No-confidence motion not feasible

But it is not feasible  for TMC  to move a no-confidence motion as TMC does not have adequate numbers in the Lok Sabha and motion may fail. The TMC has 19 MPs in the Lok Sabha and, as per Parliamentary rules, it needs to enlist the support of at least 50 MPs to push through a no-confidence motion.

Denying lending an olive branch to mamata , CPI-M general secretary Prakash Karat said: “There was a general consensus among the opposition parties that a no-confidence motion against the UPA will not be useful at this stage as the government has the numbers.”

Karat said the defeat of a no-confidence motion would be seen by the government as an endorsement of its policies by the parliament.

“We want a debate with voting on the move to bring foreign equity in multi-brand retail trade to corner the government,” he said.


Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee had been fighting the CPI(M) for many years but now it has become a friend as the party with only 19 MPs need support from others to get its no-confidence motion admitted in Lok Sabha, WBPCC president Pradip Bhattacharya said at a public meeting at Bagnan in Howrah district.

Trinamool, Bhattacharya said, had earlier termed the BJP communal but now that party's help is also being sought.

 Bhattacharya expressed confidence that the no-confidence motion against the UPA government, if brought by the Trinamool, would be defeated.

"Congress is a 128-year-old party and it will remain there even after another 128 years. It will not die. But that cannot be said about BJP, CPI(M) or Trinamool Congress," he said. Asit Mitra, the lone Congress MLA, of Howrah district,was present at the meeting.
