Does The UPA Have The Numbers?

 

UPA

Congress (INC) 207
Trinamool (TMC) 19
DMK 18
NCP 9
RLD 5
National Conference 3
JMM 2
IUML 2
Others (AIMIM + Kerala Cong + VCK + SDF+AIUDF + NPF + BPF + BVA) 8
  273
Less TMC 19
  254

Which shows why the UPA would be so dependent on the other Ms, viz Mulayam Singh Yadav's SP and Mayawati's BSP if Mamata Banerjee sees through her threat on Friday.

Samajwadi Party (SP) 22
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) 21
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) 4
Janata Dal (Secular) (JDS) 3
  50

To prove its majority, the half-way mark in the 543 member Lok Sabha is 272

Despite the severity of her tone, since Mamata Banerjee has named Friday when her ministers would resign. Do you think there is any chance of a settlement with UPA — particularly given the broad hints she dropped about being forced to take this decision — so that she would not eventually withdraw her support? Or do you think the UPA is happy to see the back of her and would rather do business with Mayawati and/or Mulayam? The shape of thiggs to come is clear from the voices already emanating from the DMKSP and much would now depend upon the BSP, as even Mayawati's party has demanded rollback of the recent decisions on FDI and diesel price hike.
