Women's bill: Mulayam, Lalu not considering no-trust vote

"Nothing as of now, we need to decide it among ourselves first and then only we can bring it (a no-confidence motion). We don't have enough MPs of our own," Mulayam, whose Samajwadi Party has 21 members in Lok Sabha, said.

On whether he was planning to carry out his threat to withdraw outside support to the UPA, the SP supremo said, "There is no question of meeting the President now." He did not elaborate. On the issue of no-trust motion, Lalu Prasad, whose RJD has four members in the Lower House, said, "There is no such decision. It is wrong information.

"We have only four MPs and, therefore, where is the question of no-confidence motion," he said. He, however, said that his party has sought a meeting with President Pratibha Patil but has not been alloted a time as yet.
