Kolkata: After withdrawing from the UPA-II government, the Trinamool Congress Saturday announced it would table a resolution on foreign direct investment(FDI) in the next session of parliament.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the party's former union ministers with party supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at the state secretariat, Writers' Buildings.

"We will move a resolution in the next session of parliament," said former minister of state for urban development Sougata Roy.

The party has already announced its plans to organise a demonstration at New Delhi's Janta Mantar Sep 26.

Terming Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's address to the nation on the recent reform measures and fuel hike Friday as "not inspiring", Roy said the speech was "unexpected".

"Such speeches are delivered on the Independence Day and when there is external emergency," he said.
