Kolkata, Oct 18 (IANS) The Congress in West Bengal has decided to table a no-confidence motion against the Trinamool Congress government next month, state party chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said here Saturday.
The Congress members would utilise the discussions to attack the Trinamool on issues like the Saradha chit fund scam, the student protests at the Jadavpur University, and the Burdwan blast, he said.
“Our legislators would demand answers from the state government on on issues like the Saradha scam, Jadavpur University protests and the blast at Khagragarh in Burdwan district. We are confident that the Speaker Biman Banerjee will allow discussions on the no confidence motion,” said Chowdhury.
The state Congress has also decided to organise a march to the assembly when the party members table the no-confidence motion in the house, he said.
Chowdhury alleged that the Trinamool regime has failed to usher in development and industrialisation in the state and uphold law and order.
The state Congress president accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of branding minorities as infiltrators after the Burdwan explosion.
“The BJP is trying to label Muslims as infiltrators. The National Democratic Alliance failed to review the refugee policy when it was in power in 1998-2004 with Atal Atal Bihari Vajpayee as prime minister. Jihadi activities in the country have increased after attempts were made to demolish the Babri Masjid and build the Ram Mandir,” he said.
