New Delhi: In the backdrop of DMK withdrawing support to UPA, BJP on Wednesday said it has no plans to bring a no-confidence motion in Parliament against the government.

"There is no need for it. The government has lost people's trust. It will fall on its own," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told reporters when asked whether his party was planning to bring a no-confidence motion.

He said the Congress-led UPA government was surviving on borrowed support and its continuation was not in the interest of the nation. "Continuation of this government is not in the interest of the nation. This government, which is trying to survive on borrowed support from here and there, is definitely not in the interest of the country," Naqvi said.

DMK had on Tuesday withdrawn support to the UPA government over the Lankan Tamils issue. On the Lankan issue, party spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "When the unrest was brewing in Sri Lanka, why did not the government take a stand then for ensuring peace. Now it (the government) is unclear about what to do."

The government which has "ushered in a policy paralysis is now a paralysed government itself," he told reporters outside Parliament House. "This government is having a magnificent certificate in managing CBI, Enforcement Directorate...Today I am more concerned about the country and less about the government," he said.
