Mamta pulls out of UPA-II on issue of FDI and fuel price hike

Written By Boneless Research on Tuesday, 18 September 2012 | 18.9.12



Bengal Chief Minister and TMC Supremo, Mamta Banerjee decided to withdraw support of Manmohan Singh led UPA-II. The decision to pull out of the government was driven by recent announcements such as reduction of subsidy on cooking gas, hike in diesel prices and introduction of FDI in retail sector.
Currently, TMC has 19 MPs in Lok Sabha and 6 ministers in the government. As per the announcement by firebrand TMC leader, all the ministers of party would submit their resignations on Friday to the PM. Withdrawal of TMC would mean that UPA-II will become minority government which is dependent on outside support from parties such as SP, BSP, RJD and JDS. Moreover, withdrawal by TMC can trigger cascading effect on UPA partners such as DMK.
