New Delhi, Nov 22: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee might have received a strong message from all political parties when no one stepped forward to support her demand to bring "No confidence motion" in the Parliament against the central government.
Trinamool Congress, which has 19 MPs, sent an official notice clarifying their stand on no confidence motion on the very beginning of Winter Session of the Parliament on Thursday, Nov 22. However, the speaker rejected their demand citing the short of number.
Mamata Banerjee's party failed to garner the minimum support, i.e. support from minimum 50 MPs, to bring no confidence motion against the central government.
Starting from arch-Mamata Banerjee rival CPI(M) to BJP-led NDA, all refused to support TMC chief's demand moving against Manmohan Singh government.
The West Bengal Chief Minister earlier had withdrawn her support from the central government showing her protest against allowing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in retail. She claimed that post her exit, UPA government does not have authority to push FDI in multi-brand retail.
