We have not been approached over trust vote: AIADMK

New Delhi: In a setback to Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee's efforts to topple the government through a trust vote, the AIADMK has made it clear that while it will vote against FDI in Parliament, no one has so far sought its support for the no-confidence motion against the government.

"There is no change in the AIADMK's stand. We will support motion against FDI in retail. No one has approached us for a no-confidence motion. If they do, we will consider the issue," AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa said, adding that her party was ready to face elections anytime.

The CPM has already made it clear that it does not support Mamata's move. While the BJP said it had decided its stand on the issue and will reveal it only later in the evening after the NDA meet, sources said that the party too favours a discussion on FDI with voting under rule 184 in the Lok Sabha. The SP, meanwhile, has said that it will reveal its cards in Parliament.
