Unedited status update by the Trinamool Congress chief on Facebook
Today, I have clarified the stand taken by All India Trinamool Congress in its proposed move to bring No-Confidence Motion against the present UPA Government.
Yesterday, I spoke to Shri Gurudas Dasgupta, the CPI leader because I have come to know through media that they had agreed to support the No-Confidence Motion against the UPA Government. I have also learnt about the statement of the CPI(M)
Party that they are not going to support the Motion because it is being moved by the Trinamool Congress. CPI being a part of the Left Front, I requested Shri Dasgupta to take up this matter with the CPI(M) Party. If they (CPIM) have any problem to support the No-Confidence Motion moved by the Trinamool Congress, they may move such Motion themselves. But I want to be assured that the No-Confidence Motion is tabled for voting. I will have no hesitation in voting for the No-Confidence Motion moved by them, and for that reason even if I am required to go to the Party Headquarters of CPI(M) for discussion, I will do so.
The nation is currently passing through a very critical and crucial time. Sometimes such situation deserves strong will and strong decision. The minority government at the Center is not following democratic norms and is taking a series of anti-people decisions like FDI in Retail, Pension and Insurance sectors, cap on subsidized LPG cylinders, hike in diesel and fertilizer prices, etc. Prices of essential commodities are rising unabatedly. The voice of protest is being silenced and the CBI is being misused. Every time, the Congress with their friends develops fine artistry in distancing itself from certain political parties.
The present situation also demands strong stand that the present ‘UPA Government must go’. Some political parties are acting as saviour of corrupt government. They should take the cause of the common people and oppose the UPA Government, because people of this country want to see who are the saviours of this ‘vrastachari sarkar’.
I appeal to all political parties to stand united and join the No-Confidence Motion against the UPA Government for the greater interest of the motherland, so that corruption and anti-people decisions are thwarted.
