Will UPA-2 survive this crisis?
September 18, 2012 | Duration: 52 min, 33 sec
Mamata Banerjee has pulled out of UPA government, leaving it in a minority. This means that once Ms Banerjee informs President Pranab Mukherjee formally of her decision and her six ministers resign to the Prime Minister, the President will have to call for vote of confidence in Parliament. The UPA will now be hoping that Mayawati's BSP pulls it through when there is a confidence vote - but it has already laid down its conditions, which are very similar to Ms Banerjee's.
