‘Mamata took a pro-people step’

The Bharatiya Janata Party [BJP] on Friday said that withdrawal of support by the Trinamool Congress [TMC] from the government was a pro-people step as they had abandoned the sinking ship of the United Progressive Alliance [UPA] government.

'Today is an important day for the nation as half a dozen ministers of the anti-common man UPA government are resigning from it. This government has become a burden on the common man and these resignations are paving the way for freeing the people from it,' said BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain. He added that the government does not enjoy a majority now.

However, the party did not spell its stand on the question if BJP would  demand  a special session of Parliament for testing the strength of the government. 'As a responsible opposition, we are at the moment keeping a keen eye on the developments taking place,' said Hussain.

Attacking the Samajwadi Party [SP], Hussain said that by giving outside support to the government, SP is providing oxygen to the government. 'Samajwadi Party has taken to the streets, it has created the confusion of being with the opposition but is also supporting the government,' said the BJP spokesperson.

The BJP leader added that that while Mulayam Singh Yadav claims that he has supported the government to keep communal forces at bay, Uttar Pradesh has been witnessing frequent communal clashes. The party also said that government's decision of  going ahead with its decision on FDI, shows the arrogance of the government as it did not listen to its ally TMC and DMK.
