The Numbers Game: Manmohan Singh-led government in trouble

Every political party in India is now playing the number game.

The Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government, whose strength was reduced after the withdrawal of support by the Left Front, is expected to be short of the magic figure of 272 in the 543-member Lok Sabha. While the UPA is banking on undecided parties and Independent MPs, smaller parties are watching the political drama unfold and waiting for their chance to play kingmaker.

Will the UPA survive Tuesday’s vote of confidence or will the Manmohan Singh-led government crumble due to lack of support?

A ready reckoner of who is with the UPA, who is against it and who is yet to decide.
