Leader of Opposition and Congress MLA Abdul Mannan has said that his party will bring in a no confidence motion against the state government in the upcoming Assembly session.

“We will bring the motion after the failure of the state government on all fronts. They have not taken any action against their ministers and leaders who had been involved with several chit funds,” Mannan said on Wednesday at a press conference.

The Congress leader also said that his party did not participate in the all-party meeting convened on Wednesday at the Assembly as a mark of protest against the TMC. “They have attacked members of the opposition parties, forced and enticed elected leaders to join their party and slapped false charges on them if they didn’t relent. They have not even officially inducted those who had switched sides to join them.
That is why we did not attend the meeting. If these atrocities don’t stop, MLAs of opposition parties will not attend any of these meetings,” he added.

Mannan also said that there is a proposed discussion of two-and-half hours on demonetisation, but the Congress was not on the same page as the TMC. “The TMC is demanding a rollback of the decision of demonetisation of higher denomination notes, but we are not. We are concerned about the inconveniences that people are and will be facing because of the decision. We want a proper solution to end the problems,” he added.

Asked if they would be acting jointly with the CPM, he said, “I have had a word with the leader of the Left Front Legislative Party Sujan Chakraborty. He said he will confirm in a few days.”
