Unfazed over the Left parties decision to withdraw support to UPA government, the Congress on Tuesday said there was no threat to the Manmohan Singh-led ministry and it would prove its majority in Parliament.
"The Government will prove that it has the numbers in the Parliament," Congress Spokesperson Manish Tiwari told reporters in New Delhi.
Asked about its new supporters as the Left has withdrawn its backing to the government, Tiwari said "UPA is united and the the government is stable."
On Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's statement that India would go to the IAEA, which triggered the Left pullout, he said "the Prime Minister did not say anything which we have not been saying for the last four-and-a-half years.
"Nothing which the Prime Minister said was in contradiction with our stand," Tiwari said.
