New Delhi: Trinamool Congress today ruled
out any action against Dinesh Trivedi, who resigned as Railway
Minister, saying that he has been asked to attend the
parliamentary party meeting which party chief Mamata Banerjee
is expected to attend.

"No. He has been asked to attend the Parliamentary Party
meeting," Trinamool leader Sudip Bandhopadhyay told reporters
here. He was asked whether Trinamool will take any action
against Trivedi.

He said the Prime Minister`s Office had called Trivedi
yesterday and asked him to tender his resignation.

Asked when would Banerjee`s nominee Mukul Roy take over
as Railway Minister, he said the decision will be taken at the
Parliamentary Party meeting.

61-year-old Trivedi resigned last night as Railway
Minister ending his defiance and bringing to a close five-day
drama after he incurred the wrath of Trinamool Congress for
hiking passenger fares in the Railway Budget.

On the question of Trinamool pressing on amendments on
the NCTC issue in the President`s address, Bandhopahdhyay said
the Prime Minister in his reply to the motion is likely to
make an announcement that no further action on the proposed
organisation will take place before April 16 when meeting of
Chief Ministers will be held in Delhi.

Asked whether his party will rock the UPA government, he
said he has already made it clear that Trinamool Congress
would like to see the government complete its full five year
term.
