TMC warns UPA as deadline ticks away

New Delhi: The Trinamool Congress has warned the UPA to expect tough decisions as Mamata Banerjee's 72-hour deadline to the government ticks away. It remains to be seen whether the TMC will exit the Cabinet and provide outside support.

"We oppose the anti-people policies of the government, be it the diesel price hike, LPG or FDI in retail," TMC leader Kunal Ghosh said. However, he added that the party's intention was not to destabilise the government.

"If the government does not responds, then TMC is left with no option but to take a tough decision. We don't want to destabilise the government but cannot overlook the interest of the common people," Ghosh added.

Mamata Banerjee has given time to the government till Tuesday to roll back the diesel price hike and the decision on FDI in retail.
