No-confidence motion against Left Front government

Written by: Staff

Kolkata, Nov 21 (UNI) Upping the ante against the Left Front government's ''anti-people'' and ''anti-farmer'' policies, the Trinamool Congress and the Congress today jointly brought a no-confidence motion in the Assembly.

Speaker H A Halim admitted the motion against the government, saying it would be taken up for discussion on November 30.

Before admitting the motion, the Speaker asked those, who signed the no-trust notice to raise their hands to get it admitted.

It came in the backdrop of a controversy over the acquisition of farm land for Tata Motors' small car project at Singur in Hooghly district.

Leader of Opposition Partha Chatterjee (Trinamool Congress) served the notice to the Speaker about bringing the motion, which was signed by five Congress MLAs.

The two parties together have 51 MLAs in the 294-member House.

The Congress joining hands with the Trinamool Congress to bring the motion was a damage control exercise after it fielded a candidate against the latter for the by-election to the Islampur Assembly seat in north Bengal.
