RJD, a key ally of the UPA, on Monday claimed that the government has support of more than 291 MPs and it will win the trust vote in the Lok Sabha.
"Our number is continuously growing. It has now exceeded the 291 mark. There is going to be a great victory for us," said Union Railway Minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad while talking to reporters outside Parliament House.
Strongly defending the nuclear deal, Prasad, in his inimitable style, said that in today's world people were getting land registered on the moon and India, which was isolated earlier, can now get the recognition it needed.
"Our trust vote is the trust of the country. The people are in favour of nuclear power," said Prasad asserting that UPA will win the trial of strength.
