A day after CPI (M) rejected her party's proposal to bring a no-confidence motion against UPA government, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday stuck to her gun and said she has no hesitation to support a left-sponsored no-trust move to bring down the government.

"If necessary, I am even prepared to go to CPI (M) state party headquarters at Alimuddin street here and talk to its secretary Biman Bose on the issue," Banerjee told reporters at the state secretariat.

"My appeal to the CPI-M is not to do anything to bail out this minority government which is steeped in corruption and which has taken many anti-people decisions," she said.

She further said, "If they have reservation about our party sponsoring the motion, let the CPI-M bring it, we will support, provided there is assurance that they will not withdraw it midway striking a deal with Congress. If the issue is same, there is no objection to support their motion".

To a question on BJP vis-a-vis the proposed no-trust motion of her party, she said, "Let them decide. They have to take a stand."

Apparently hitting out at the Congress and the CPI (M) for floating "BJP fear psychosis", she said, "BJP is a political party whose ideology we do not support. Every party has his own ideology. We have our ideology but this is not a religious issue. This is an issue which involves saving the country.
