JMM, TDP to decide on UPA support today

New Delhi, July 13 (ANI): The Jharkhan Mukti Morcha (JMM) and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) will separately meet today to decide on support to Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government.

Though JMM is an ally of the UPA Government, it is still not clear whether it will support them or not. JMM has been unhappy with the Congress, as its Chief Shibu Soren, was not included in the union Cabinet.

Shibu Soren has demanded that JMM be given a Cabinet berth at the Centre and has also revived an old wish to head the UPA regime in Ranchi.

Meanwhile, the TDP will meet to arrive at a decision, though all indications are that they will vote against the Indo-US nuke deal.

Earlier, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu met Left leaders Prakash Karat and AB Bardhan though Naidu did not make his stand official on support.

The UPA Government will face the trust vote in the Lok Sabha on July 21-22. (ANI)
