Mamata Banerjee rejected the request of Congress to wait till March 30th to replace the Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi. She said she will give time to UPA till this evening to act in this regard.
Congress plans for one more attempt to convince her and if it is unsuccessful, Mr Trivedi will be replaced this week.
Mr Pranab Mukerji says that the PM office has received the letter from Mamata on dismissal of Mr Trivedi and the decision yet to be taken on the same. In the mean time, Mr Dinesh trivedi is attending the Parliament and calls himself Railway minister and feels he is responsible to pass the Railway Budget. He also affirms that if PM or Mayawati asks to quite he will do so immediately.
Ms Mamata has opined that the whole scenario of crisis is the work of congress and condemnation resolution was passed on Dinesh Trivedi as no one is above party discipline.
