Kolkata, Dec 5 (UNI) The Trinamool Congress would not support any no-confidence motion, mooted by the Congress against the West Bengal government in the winter session of the Assembly, Opposition leader Partha Chatterjee said today.

Talking to mediapersons, Mr Chatterjee said, '' The people of the state have lost confidence in the Left Front government and hence there is no point in bringing a no-confidence motion on the floor of the House. '' '' We demand immediate resignation of Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, who has failed on fronts, specially on Nandigram, which was criticised by the Governor, the High Court and several commissions, '' he said.

Mr Chatterjee said the Chief Minister should immediately step down because of his admission of administrative and political failure on Nandigram.

He said the Trinamool Congress would not boycott the current Assembly session and bring adjournment motions on the issues of Nandigram, Singur, Rizwanur and ration card.

Meanwhile, Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Manas Bhuniya said his party wanted to bring a no-confidence motion against the state government in league with the Trinamool Congress and other anti-CPI(M) parties as the Congress had lesser number of MLAs in the House to bring such motion.

'' But if our appeal in this regard is not responded by other political parties, we will bring a censor motion against the state government in the current session of the House, '' Mr Bhuniya observed.

He said to bring a censor motion in the Assembly a political party did not require to have such ''fixed strength.'' UNI
