Calcutta, Oct. 30: Chief minister Mamata Banerjee today iterated that the UPA-II government had no moral right to remain in power after Trinamul’s withdrawal of support.
“The government has lost its right to stay in the power. After we withdrew support, the central government should have sought a confidence vote on the floor of Parliament voluntarily,” Mamata said at a news conference at Writers’.
“Except Sharad Pawar’s party (the NCP), there is no other party in the UPA-II government. There are no representatives from the parties of Mulayamji and Mayawati. Even the DMK has not sent any representative to the government. Isn’t it a minority government?” she asked.
The chief minister said she supported Anna Hazare’s demand. “I have come to know that Anna Hazare has demanded dissolution of Parliament. I also feel that the central government should seek a fresh mandate from the people because the minority government’s policies are repeatedly affecting common people.”
