Mamata Banerjee supports Anna Hazare, says UPA government in minority
Kolkata: Announcing support for Anna Hazare`s demand for immediate dissolution of Parliament, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said the UPA government was a minority one with one party rule.
"This is a minority government and I totally agree with Hazare`s demands made yesterday. The UPA government came to power with our support. After we left we wrote to the President that we have withdrawn support from the government. This is a Congress government now, not a UPA government," Banerjee told a press conference here.
"They don`t have any right now as it is a minority government," Banerjee said.
Along with former Army chief General (retd) VK Singh, anti-corruption crusader Hazare had yesterday demanded immediate dissolution of Parliament.
