After the DMK Tuesday announced its withdrawal from the ruling UPA, the BJP said it would not bring a no-confidence motion as it wants the government to fall on its own.

"The Congress-led government has neither the trust of the people nor of its own allies. They should get out," BJP leader M. Venkaiah Naidu said.

"Nothing is well with the Congress. It is no longer capable of running the country," he added.


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) - the main opposition party - also said that the Congress was not fit to rule the country any more.

"The Congress-led UPA government is in an ICU. It is a lame duck government surviving on the support of two contradictory parties," BJP leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy said. He, however, added: "We will not bring a no-confidence motion. We want the government to fall on its own."

Rudy also said that the UPA government's allies were now trying to find excuses to abandon the "sinking ship" of the Congress.

"One after the other the UPA's allies are trying to find excuses and break away. None of them wants to carry the burden of the Congress to the next general elections," he said.

The DMK Tuesday quit the UPA and its government, voicing dismay over India's stand on Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). However, the party refused to comment on whether it would favour bringing a resolution against Sri Lanka in parliament.

"We have not been approached for any resolution," Naidu said. A senior DMK leader indicated they may not favour passing a resolution on the internal matters of another country in parliament as it would be akin to Pakistan's resolution on Afzal Guru's hanging.
