Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Thursday described as
'immoral and unethical' the decision by the 'minority' government at the
Centre on hike in FDI in insurance and pension sectors, and called on all
UPA partners to quit the government in protest.

"Today, yet another set of anti-people decisions of the Central Government
have crossed the Laxman Rekha. These important decisions, which have
direct bearing on the livelihood of millions of Indians, taken by a
minority government, are immoral and unethical," Banerjee wrote on her
Facebook page.

"Increase in FDI percentage from 26 to 49 in Insurance Sector and
introducing 26% FDI in Pension Sector will make lifelong savings of
individuals totally insecure," she said.

"Is it the intention of the UPA Government to sell out the country? We
should unitedly oppose all such moves and will not allow the government to
be bailed out after a series of such anti-people decisions," the Trinamool
Congress chief said.

Stating that the people of the country were watching the UPA government,
she said, "I will also appeal to those supporting UPA to come out and
oppose these moves in the greater interest of the people.

"Sarkar jaana jaroori hai, desh ko bachane ke liye," she said.

Calling for moving a no confidence motion against the government, Banerjee
said, "The minority government cannot play such immoral role. Let us move
No Confidence Motion. We have decided to meet the Hon'ble President on
this issue."
