Mamata Banerjee Withdrawing Support to UPA-2 Government

After a marathon meet happened on 18th September 2012 at Town Hall, Kolkata Trinamool Congress Party (TMC) founder & Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee announces their party decision of withdrawing their support to the UPA-2 GovernmentTMC founder & Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee said that the TMC Leaders, who are in the Central Ministry, will submit their resignation to the Prime Minister on 21st September 2012 (Friday) at 3pm.

Why Mamata Banerjee took this decision of withdrawing their support to UPA-2 Government?
Last week Congress-led UPA-2 Government announced few measures like Limiting LPG Cooking Gas 6 per year per family, Diesel price hike by Rs.5/- and allowing Foreign Direct Invest (FDI) in retail market. This decision took by UPA-2 Government was opposed by all opponent parties of Congress like BJP-led NDA, Left Front, and most importantly UPA-2 alliance party Trinamool Congress. TMC founder Mamata Banerjee always worked for the people and never intends to increase price in any sector that would harm common people. Thus, UPA-2 Government was given 72-hours by Mamata Banerjee, who works for Maa Maati Manush, to think on their decision & to roll-back. As per the schedule, 72-hours deadline ends on 18th September 2012 (Tuesday) and so Mamata Banerjee met with all TMC Leaders at Town Hall of Kolkata and after the marathon meeting of 3 hours Mamata Banerjee announces TMC party decision.
What are the decisions Mamata Banerjee took on protest of diesel price hike, LPG cooking gas limitation & allowing FDI policy of UPA-2 Government on 18th September 2012?
Around 8:30pm on 18th September 2012 (Tuesday), Mamata Banerjee announces that –
  • Ministers from TMC party will submit their resignation on 21st September 2012 (Friday) at 3pm. Ministers like Sougata Roy, Mukul Roy, Sudip Bandopadhyay & others will submit their resignation letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
  • TMC is withdrawing support towards Congress-led UPA-2.
Are there any chances of ‘TMC not withdrawing support from UPA-2 Government’?
Mamata Banerjee has also announces that if UPA-2 Government accepts the demands of Mamata Banerjee within 21st September 2012 then she can re-think about her decision of withdrawing support. Now, let’s check out what are the demands of Mamata Banerjee
  • At least 12 LPG Cooking Gas per year per family at cheap price.
  • Diesel price hike of Rs.5/- should reduce by Rs.4/- or Rs.3/-. It means, the Diesel Price should  increase by Rs.2/- or Rs.1/- only.
  • Disallow Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in retail-market.
  • Reduce the price of fertilizers to help farmers of India in Agricultural field.
If UPA-2 Government agrees with the above conditions given by Mamata Banerjee by 21st September 2012, then Mamata Banerjee will re-think about her decision also.
What could happen next if UPA-2 disagree with Mamata Banerjee’s conditions and TMC withdraws their support?
Since, Trinamool Conrgess (TMC) is the largest alliance of Congress-led UPA-2 Government, thus withdrawing support to UPA-2 may result in Government falling down if other parties don’t support to UPA-2 Government in coming days and the election in India may happen before the scheduled year 2014.
