Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, commenting on the victory of the UPA government in the Lok Sabha by a slender margin of 35 votes on the motion on FDI on Wednesday said that it was a minority government.


"The government is in a minority," Banerjee said.

In a post on Facebook, she said "The mandate today proves that the UPA-II is a minority Government. As against the majority figure of 271, based on the total strength of the House, the support was only 253, despite all attempts made by the selfish people.

"This Government has lost its credibility. They must take fresh verdict from the people," she said.
