Mulayam not to go Mamata way on price rise, FDI

Talking to media persons SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav said “Our support is clear. We will not let communal forces come to power. That is why I am supporting. I am not in UPA. But we are supporting so that communal forces do not go ahead,”.

Yadav’s statement has come as a big relief to the UPA, whose support in the Lok Sabha came down from 273 to 254 after Trinamool decided to pull out of the government and withdraw its support.

With the outside support of SP (22) and BSP (21), the coalition will continue to have the backing of over 300 MPs in the 545-member Lok Sabha. For a simple majority, government needs the support of at least 273 MPs.

Answering a question on whether SP will be withdrawing support to UPA, Yadav said, “why will we take the support back? We have to keep communal forces away from power. But we are not in UPA.”

His remarks came a day after he shared dais with leaders of Left, JD(S), BJD and TDP at an anti-government protest during a nationwide bandh against FDI in retail and hike in diesel prices. However, he refused to share the stage with BJP leaders at a nearby protest venue where Left leaders Sitaram Yechury and A B Bardhan were also present.

Asked if he was in favour of mid-term elections, Yadav shot back, “where is the question of mid-term polls? Ask Congress about this, what they want and whether they want it or run the government.”

Meanwhile Parliamentry Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal today said, the UPA government has the required numbers and is not under any threat of loosing majority. Speaking to a Private Channel, Mr. Bansal said, the Constitutional requirment is 272 in the Lok Sabha and the UPA enjoys the overwhelming support of 310 MPs.
