"Mamata Banerjee should simply stop threatening the UPA government and withdraw the support," Uddhav said.

He also asked Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, and Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav to withdraw support from the UPA government. "Till when we will tolerate the heat of fuel price rise?" he asked.

Uddhav also exuded confidence that the Congress-led government will now be dethroned by the people.
