Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh), July 12 : Workers of the Congress Party here on Friday offered prayers to help the party secure a vote of confidence in Parliament on July 22, following a decision by Communist allies to withdraw support to the UPA Government over the India-US nuclear deal.
The activists said they were confident about the Central Government winning the vote of confidence.
"We are 100 percent confident that the government will survive. There are people who are opposed to development, whereas there are others who want development. Victory will be for the one's who are pro-development. We will achieve under the able leadership and guidance of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh," said Ajay Kapoor, a legislator.
The winning of the confidence vote is crucial for operationalising the India-US civil nuclear deal.
