TMC to move no-confidence motion on Thursday

November 21, 2012 22:31 IST

Trinamool Congress, a former ally of the United Progressive Alliance, will move a no-confidence motion against the UPA government on Thursday when Parliament meets for the winter session.

Party sources said the motion would be tabled just before the sitting on the first day of the session of the House.

Party Chief Mamata Banerjee has directed all the party MPs, except Kabir Suman who is considered a rebel, to be present in the Lok Sabha, sources said.

Trinamool Congress has 19 members in the Lok Sabha.

Strongly opposing Foreign Direct Investment in retail sector, Banerjee has remained adamant in moving the no-confidence motion despite being isolated by the opposition parties over it.

She had said on Wednesday that she has no hesitation in supporting even a no-trust motion moved by Left parties.

"If necessary, I am even prepared to go to the CPM state party headquarters in Alimuddin Street and talk to its secretary Biman Bose," she had told reporters in Kolkata.
