She said that politicians should be more bothered about the common people rather than winning personal laurels.
“We are not in favour of toppling the government. But they should not forget the ‘Lakshman Rekha’ of the alliance. We will not agree with any anti-people decisions. We have given 72-hour deadline to rethink… if you roll back, it’s good. But if not, then be ready to face the consequences,” she said at the rally.
“UPA isn’t made up of just one party. Why weren’t other parties in UPA consulted on fuel hike?” , she asked
Ms Banerjee said she was shocked at how the country was being sold. “The price of human beings is declining, and every other price is rising… Without fuel subsidy, how will poor families bear the burden?” she said. “This may be digestible to one part of the government, but not to us,” she added.
Meanwhile Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati too slammed the UPA government saying she would rethink over continuing support to the government.
The BSP leader who has provided support to the Centre at critical moments, said, “We condemn the implementation of FDI (in multi-brand retail)…We had opposed it earlier and we will oppose it now as well…we will decide on October 10 whether we will support the UPA from outside or not.”
