UPA Govt reduced to a ''minority'': CPI

Hyderabad, Oct 27 (UNI) Alleging that the Congress-led UPA government had allegedly been reduced to a ''minority'', CPI National Assistant Secretary S Sudhakar Reddy today took strong objection to the adjournment of Lok Sabha.

As the government does not enjoy a majority and the MPs, who have switched over sides are bound to be disqualified, the government had extended the Special session, convened to discuss the motion of confidence in the Manmohan Singh government and technically prevent the opposition from moving a no-confidence motion in the same session,'' he alleged at a press conference here.

''The government, instead of proroguing the Special session, is bent upon continuing the same session and go for vote on account before dissolving the Lok Sabha,'' the MP alleged, adding, ''this is totally undemocratic.'' Ruling out early elections to Lok Sabha, he said the Centre was bent upon continuing till its term ends. The Left parties would expose its strategy of continuing in power allegedly without majority, he added.

Referring to the drastic fall in Sensex by thousands of points just 72 hours after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram assured the country that the nation's economic fundamentals were strong, he claimed that the UPA government's policies of economic liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation were responsible for the crisis.

Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) were responsible for the present economic crisis, he claimed, adding the credit for relative insulation of the country compared to other nations, goes to the Left parties putting a check on economic liberalisation.

Lamenting that many serious issues, including the agrarian, the Bills to protect unorganised labour and for Reservation for women, could not be taken up in Lok Sabha, he said, ''it is unfortunate that Parliament met for only 35 days during 2008 as against 165 days during the Nehru regime.''
