Trinamool Congress could pull out ministers

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Withdrawal of support from the government was, however, not discussed, Roy, also Union Minister of State for Urban Development, told PTI.

"Mamata Banerjee has not said anything sort of withdrawal of support. We will take a tough decision if the Centre does not accept our demands. We have two committments - to fight the anti-people decisions of the UPA government and to see the stability of the government.

We have to strike a balance between the two," he said.

He said the Centre was yet to make any offer to TC Chief Mamata Banerjee.

"Hard decisions would be taken if the Centre does not accede to the demands (of TC). There will be no soft compromise. We do not bark but we also bite".

Asked to comment on Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram's statement that the government will not roll back the decisions he said "We know the prime minister has the last word."

TC sources said the parliamentary party meeting would be an extended one with several senior party leaders and MLAs including the state ministers attending it.
