New Delhi, Jul 20 (UNI) The three member Janata Dal (Secular) will collectively vote against the Confidence Motion to be moved by the Congress-led UPA government in the Lok Sabha, party Chief H D Deve Gowda today announced ending speculation.
Addressing reporters after a meeting with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati who called him on at his residence, Mr Gowda said his party had traditionally been with the Left parties all along and the decision was ''natural'' for it.
The party had earlier withdrawn the suspension against its Kerala MP M P Veerendra Kumar after he expressed his desire to come back to the party fold.
Mr Gowda also said the UNPA would come out with a national document delineating the common programme of all the big and small parties which are its constituents on basic issues like price rise, inflation, unemployment, nuclear deal, problems confronting minorities and dalits.
Telangana Rashtra Samiti President K Chandrasekhara Rao was also present at the meeting.
Mr Gowda accompanied by his fellow Lok Sabha MP S Shivanna said that it was Ms Mayawati who had set the ball into motion against the UPA by withdrawing her support to the Manmohan Singh-led government.
The Left parties had followed suit withdrawing their outside support to the UPA.
