Kolkata, Sep 19 (IANS) West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee Wednesday said that she and her party stood firm on the "pro-people" decision of withdrawing the support to the union government.
"I will reiterate that we have taken a decision, which is of the people, for the people and by the people - and also pro-people. We stand by it," Banerjee posted on her Facebook page.
Miffed over the United Progressive Alliance government's decisions to raise diesel prices and allow FDI in multi-brand retail trade, Banerjee Tuesday announced that the Trinamool Congress was withdrawing support to it.
Banerjee criticised a section of media for spreading what she called disinformation about her party at "the behest of certain vested interests".
"Again a section of negligible channels is spreading misinformation and disinformation at the behest of certain vested interests. Always I have noticed that, whenever a strong stand is taken for the cause of the common people, such section tries to malign and create confusion. It is better not to trust such rumours, gossips and planted news," she posted.
