New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajanath Singh on Wednesday said that the party will not move no-confidence motion against the UPA government as the central government is all set to lose the next elections.
"We are not bringing no-confidence motion against the government because there is no point in it. This government will fall on its own," said Singh.
Earlier, BJP vice president Mukhtar Abbas had also spoken on the same lines.
"There is no need for no-confidence motion. The government has lost people's trust. It will fall on its own," Naqvi said.
DMK, a key ally of the UPA government formally withdrew support from the Central government on Tuesday. The DMK ministers are due to submit their resignations to the Prime Minister today.
He said the Congress-led UPA government was surviving on borrowed support and its continuation was not in the interest of the nation.
"Continuation of this government is not in the interest of the nation. This government, which is trying to survive on borrowed support from here and there, is definitely not in the interest of the country," Naqvi said.
Putting up a brave front, the Congress said on Wednesday that they were not a lameduck government and that they will carry on with business as usual.
Finance Minister P Chidambaram said, "We enjoy the majority and our hand are firmly on the wheel." "We will continue to push for legislation and all important bills will be passed. We will continue to take executive decision," he added.
On the issue of resolution against Sri Lanka he said, "We intend to move amendments to the draft resolution on Sri Lanka in the UNHRC."
Chidambaram said that Tamil sentiments could be represented only through an appropriate resolution in Parliament.
"Government denies that India is working wih US to dilute UNHRC resolution on Sri Lanka," the Finance Minister said and described reports in this regard a canard.
"India's position is that UNHRC should adopt a strong resolution on Sri Lanka," he added.
