Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee today said the public has already expressed "no-confidence" against the Centre and there was no need for bringing a motion against it in this regard.
The BJP today virtually told its 31 newly-elected legislators in Delhi to prepare for fresh polls. It's been two days since election results were announced in the capital, but neither the BJP, which is the single-largest party in a hung House, nor Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party, which came in at number 2, have made any move towards government formation.
Congress today first indicated its willingness to back the Aam Aadmi Party to form the Delhi government but later taunted it, saying Arvind Kejriwal should join hands with BJP.
Badly bruised by its humiliating defeat in the state elections, the ruling Congress believes that voters have punished it for stubborn inflation, and some of its senior leaders are demanding the urgent reversal of crucial economic reforms which have affected the price of cooking gas and fuel.
After the Congress was emphatically rejected by voters in state elections, party veteran Mani Shankar Aiyar has predicted that the Congress will lose the general election and should use its time in the opposition to reinvent itself.
Arvind Kejriwal reiterated today that there is no question of his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) providing any kind of support that would allow the BJP to form the government in Delhi. Mr Kejriwal said that his colleague, Prashant Bhushan, who took a different stand on NDTV last night, was expressing his personal and not the party opinion.
The BJP's 31 newly-elected legislators in Delhi were virtually told to prepare for fresh elections by senior party leader Nitin Gadkari this morning. He said they must "think of themselves not as MLAs, but as candidates."

BJP's Chief Ministerial candidate Vasundhara Raje today called on Rajasthan Governor Margaret Alva to stake claim to form the government following her party's landslide win in the Assembly polls.
She was accompanied by the party MLA Gulabchand Kataria and two other party leaders.The meeting lasted for a few minutes, Raj Bhawan sources said.
The oath ceremony will take place on December 13.
Delhi BJP unit chief Vijay Goel said the party would not indulge in any "jod-tod" or horse trading to form the government.
The BJP won 31 seats, emerging as the single largest party. But it is short of the 36 mark in the 70-member assembly that would give it the majority and the right to form the government.
Dharmender Koli from the AAP has been accused by the man he defeated, Congressman Veer Singh Dhingan, of entering his house and misbehaving with the Congress leader's wife during a victory procession on Sunday.
Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which emerged the star of last week's Delhi election, appears to be divided over its first major political decision.
