A day after the CPI(M) refused to back a no-confidence motion against the UPA planned by the Trinamool Congress, its chief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday stuck to her guns and said she has no hesitation to support a Left-sponsored no-trust move to bring down the government.
“If necessary, I am even prepared to go to CPI(M) State party headquarters at Alimuddin Street here and talk to its secretary Biman Bose on the issue,” Ms. Banerjee told reporters at the State secretariat.
“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 the BJP vis-à-vis the proposed no-trust motion of her party, she said, “Let them decide. They have to take a stand.”
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.”
