New Delhi: Congress leader and East Delhi MP Sandeep Dikshit says the UPA Government is stable and the legislations on foreign direct investments (FDI) cleared by the Cabinet in the last few weeks would be passed by Parliament without any difficulty. Speaking to CNN-IBN Sandeep Dikshit claimed that the UPA has the numbers and threats by Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee to bring a no confidence motion against the government would have no affect on the Manmohan Singh regime.
"She is welcome to do what she believes in. Stability of the government is clear. Whenever the no confidence motion comes, if it comes I think it will be great opportunity to clarify on a lot of issues we have been unable to do in a past one and a half years," said Sandeep when asked about Mamata's post on Facebook that she will be moving a no confidence motion against the government.
He said that even though the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party are not keen on FDI in retail, they will not rock the UPA's boat. "They are not necessarily opposed to all of them. The Samajwadi Party was opposed to FDI in multi-brand retail. If you remember Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had said why only FDI in retail, why not in all the sectors. BSP also I don't think has made any open stand with regard to FDI," he said.
"I don't think the govt is in trouble in anyway. I am sure if and when the time comes we will sail through quite clearly," said the Congress MP. He added that he was confident of the legislations going through Parliament.
