Fuel price rollback: Trinamool Congress asks MPs' to camp in Delhi, put pressure on Centre

Kolkata, Mon, 07 Nov 2011 ANI

Kolkata/New Delhi, Nov.7 (ANI): The Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress has reportedly asked its 18 Members of Parliament (MPs') to camp in national capital New Delhi to step up pressure on the UPA Government at the Centre to roll back the recent petrol hike.


A television channel quoted Trinamool sources as saying that Banerjee has the resignation letters of the party's central Cabinet Ministers' with her. The lawmakers, some of whom are Central Cabinet Ministers, have sought an appointment with the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, on Tuesday, to discuss the fuel price issue.


The TMC, according to party sources, wants some action before Manmohan Singh leaves for the SAARC Summit in the Maldives later this week.


Last week, Banerjee threatened to pull out of the UPA alliance over the Rs. 1.82 fuel price hike, even as the opposition dared her to carry out her threat.


Even with a cabinet minister and five junior ministers at the centre, Banerjee still feels that her party does not have any say in government decisions.


While the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) is yet to confirm an appointment with the Trinamool lawmakers, Banerjee is hoping for some action before Dr. Singh leaves for Male. (ANI)
