Kolkata, Mar 1: Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee has made it clear that Trinamool Congress would remain in the UPA and continue to raise 'people's concerns'.

Speaking to a TV channel, Banerjee said, "Some are trying to create confusion over our alliance (with Congress). I request them that they should not try to create confusion over our alliance."

Trinamool Congress chief further said, "We will remain in the UPA government, while continuing to raise people's concerns on various issues."

Banerjee stated that the party stood for the poor and will not support the hike in prices of fertilisers and fuel.

She said,"The rise in prices of petrol when the people are already suffering from the price hike of essential commodities will not be proper."

"I have already urged the Prime Minister and Soniaji requesting for a roll back in the fuel price hike as it will create difficulties for the common people. It is not a matter of a quarrel," she added.
