Sources said after a meeting of the top Congress leadership at the residence of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that the government would explain to Trinamool Congress ministers the circumstances under which these decisions were taken.
There was no indication as to what the government would do on the demands of Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee who has sought the total withdrawal of FDI in retail, the slashing of Rs 5 hike in diesel price by Rs 4 or Rs 3 and raise the cap on LPG cylinders from 6 to 12.
When asked about the Trinamool demands for rollback of the decisions, the sources merely said, “Ask the petroleum minister.”
Six ministers of Trinamool Congress are slated to resign Friday afternoon if the government does not rollback its decisions.
The sources recalled that the government sought to reach out to Mamata Banerjee four days ago to explain the background behind the decisions it took.
The Prime Minister tried to speak to Banerjee twice over phone but she did not return the calls. Then Railway Minister Mukul Roy was contacted, the sources said, adding Roy acknowledged that Banerjee had received the message.
However, Roy said today that nobody from the government has spoken to him after Mamata Banerjee decided on withdrawing support last night.
IN ORDER TO RETAIN CHAIR AND POWER, THE PRESENT CENTRAL GOVT HAS LOST ALL MORAL VALUES. OTHERWISE WHY IT HAS TO GIVE DETAILS OF ITS MISDEEDS TO MAMTA BANERJEE. WHY IT HAS TO UNVEIL AND BEG BEFORE MAMATA THE GOVT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ITS ACTS TO PEOPLE OF INDIA AND NOT MAMTA BANERJEE
Time is essence of everything.Onee we misses it for whatever reason,it always require time to fix the Agenda exactly in its exact place.A hike is diesel price is possibly a requirement but it can be this sharp which shall dislodge everything which is still under reach of us.While remaining with UPA, Ms.MAMATA never ever tried to earn illicit fund which speaks volume of her character and hence her obsevations on the subject; surely carrying much of value to the entire Country.This is what is she!
In this whole business of reforms for the ruling party, everyone is forgetting the 49% FDI in insurance sector . This was being demanded by America for very long period and will prove to be worse than even FDI in Retail for India. Government must explain this too to the citizens. What new technology will flow in the insurance sector or even how much FDI will flow in except what is required to control the Indian companies to repatriate the profit of this secor.
