Kolkata, Aug 1: Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee said though her party was against price rise, it would do nothing to pull down the UPA government at the Centre.
"We would like the government to consider reducing the prices to some extent. Like CPI-M we will not pull down the government. We are one hundred per cent with the government till we are there," Mamta Banerjee said.
she said since Trinamool Congress was a part of the coalition, it had sought a discussion in Parliament on the rise in prices of petroleum products under a rule which does not entail voting.
Accusing CPI(M) of adopting double-standards, she said the party was stalling Parliament with other opposition parties on the issue of price rise and at the same time raising power tariff in West Bengal.
