New Delhi: In a retaliatory move after the Lokpal Bill was tabled in Parliament Friday, the Samajwadi Party of Mulayam Singh Yadav is likely to support a no confidence motion proposed against the government over Telangana.
The Samajwadi party, which offers external support to the ruling UPA, is upset with that the government tabled the proposed anti-corruption legislation without consulting it, NDTV reported quoting sources.
On Monday, six of its MPs from Seemandhra had given notice for a no-confidence motion against Manmohan Singh government to protest creation of Telangana issue and were joined by TDP and YSR Congress Party in this endeavour.
The Seemandhra MPs, four TDP members of Lok Sabha and three members of YSR Congress Party led by Jaganmohan Reddy gave separate notices to Speaker Meira Kumar for moving the no-trust motion.
In their letter to Kumar, the Congress MPs from Seemandhra sought permission to move a motion expressing no-confidence in the Union Council of Ministers under Rule 198 of the Rules of Procedures and Conduct of Business in the Lok Sabha.
