After bitter separation with the Congress, the Trinamool Congress is mulling on moving an adjournment motion under rule 184 that entails voting in the winter session of Parliament against the "anti-people" policies of the UPA government.
"We are keeping all options including tabling an adjournment motion under rule 184 that entails voting and also moving a motion under rule 193," Leader of the Trinamool Congress Parliamentary Party in Lok Sabha Sudip Bandyopadhyay said.
"Many political parties of both sides (in the ruling UPA alliance and the Opposition parties) will support us," he said.
He declined to name the parties, saying "It will be politically unwise to disclose the names of the parties right now."
He said TMC with 19 Lok Sabha MPs and nine Rajya Sabha members would try for floor co-ordination with the Janata Dal (United), Biju Janata Dal and Samajwadi Party which were opposed to the decisions of the Centre.
"We will consult these parties for floor co-ordination before the start of the Winter Session of Parliament in the third week of next month," he said.
To a question, he ruled out the possibility of talking with the CPI(M) for floor co-ordination. "CPI(M)'s opposition is not genuine. On the contrary, it wants to isolate the TMC politically."
Asked about TMC chief Mamata Banerjee's earlier statement that the party planned to move a no-confidence motion against the government, Bandyopadhay replied, "An appropriate decision will be taken at an appropriate time."
He said his party would also grill the government on the CAG report on coal block allocation.
Maintaining that the TMC was totally opposed to disruption of the House, he said, "In the last monsoon session about 80 per cent of the time was wasted because of disruption of Parliament.
"We want a vibrant House devoted to discuss issues affecting the common people," he said.
