Trinamool Congress chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj yesterday seeking support for bringing a no-confidence motion against the UPA government at the Centre, senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi said here.
“Ms Banerjee has approached Sushma Swaraj,” Joshi said at a press conference at Kolkata Press Club here.
“The NDA will meet tomorrow or day after and take a decision,” the BJP MP said.
Mamata had attacked UPA government on FDI in retail and corruption issues on Saturday and said TMC would bring a no-confidence motion against it in the coming winter session of parliament and sought support of UPA allies and Left parties. She had also expressed readiness to talk to BJP.
Earlier, Indian Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Saturday said the government is preparing for elections in 2014 and not earlier, asserting that there was no threat to its stability.
Government will complete its term. Government will hold elections in May 2014," he said.
Asked if the government apprehends any problem from restive allies like DMK, SP or BSP, he said, "No".
