Kolkata: Alleging that the Trinamool Congress was running a 'jungle raj' in West Bengal, state BJP president Rahul Sinha on Saturday said that the party would move a no-confidence motion on the floor of the Assembly.
"I have told my party leader and our only MLA in the state Assembly Shamik Bhattacharya to move a no-confidence motion against the misrule and jungle raj of the TMC government," Sinha said.
Asked how the BJP would proceed to muster the numbers required to move a no-trust motion when it has only one MLA in the 294-member House, Sinha said, "The previous Speaker used to give importance to the party whose members are few in the Assembly. Though it is not a hard and fast rule, we hope the present Speaker will follow his example."
He also gave no specific reply when asked if his party was in talks with other MLAs in this regard.
Sinha also slammed the land policy of the state government and said that statements by the Chief Minister were creating confusion in the industrial community.
"It is strange that even after being in power for three years the state government does not have any clear land policy. Earlier, the government asked industrialists to search for their own land because the state will not interfere. Now they are saying that the state will give land from their land bank," Sinha pointed out.
