[ZESTCaste] BJP, SP planning no-confidence motion against BSP

BJP, SP planning no-confidence motion against BSP

LUCKNOW: Accusing chief minister Mayawati of diverting public
attention from the corrupt practices of her government by proposing
division of UP, the BJP on Wednesday hinted that it is contemplating
bringing a no-confidence motion against the BSP government in the
winter session of the parliament starting from November 21.

"Mayawati's move to divide the state into four parts is nothing more
than a political stunt aimed to cover up the scams of her BSP (Bahujan
Samaj Party) government," said senior party leader Kalraj Mishra.
Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, BJP national vice-president, also said, "We are
seriously planning to bring a no-confidence motion against the BSP
government in the upcoming session. The final decision would be taken
by the party's central leadership."

A party needs support of at least 10% of the total MLAs in the
assembly to move the no-confidence motion. BJP, on record, has 48
members, which is above 10% of the total 403-member house but several
MLAs have defected to other parties recently.

"As all the opposition parties have said that Mayawati government has
failed to deliver and is neck deep in corruption with its leaders
indulging in rape and murder, they should support our motion,
otherwise they will stand exposed," said a party leader.

The SP is also planning to bring no-confidence motion. However, the
two parties did not make it clear whether they will move the motion
together. The no-confidence motion gets preference over other issues
in the assembly.

The opposition parties think that by moving the motion, they would be
able to stall Mayawati's resolution for division of the state. This
would prevent them from tricky situation of voting in favour or
against the reorganisation proposal.
