In the Lok Sabha on Wednesday, the Congress presented a no-confidence motion against the government. Which was approved by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.
Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi moved a no-confidence motion when the proceedings of the Lok Sabha resumed at 12 noon.
After the support of more than 50 MPs under the rules, the speaker said that the time for the debate on the motion of no confidence will be decided after talking to all the parties.
However, while raising slogans, the opposition started demanding the presence of PM Modi. After this the Lok Sabha was adjourned till 2 pm.
The Forest (Conservation) Amendment Bill was passed when the action started again. However, due to the ruckus of the opposition, it was postponed till 11 am on Thursday.
arguments started again in Rajya Sabha also. The opposition MPs kept on raising slogans of ‘We want justice, PM Modi answer’. It was later adjourned till 2 pm.
When the proceedings began at 2 pm, the opposition staged a walkout from the House for the second consecutive day.
However, the proceedings were adjourned till July 27 after some bills were passed in the House.
Notably PM Modi had already predicted 5 years ago to bring no-confidence motion against the government.
In fact, in 2018, when a no-confidence motion was brought against the Modi government in Parliament, PM Modi, while replying in the Lok Sabha, had said, “I would like to wish you that you prepare so much that you will not have to bring no-confidence again in 2023.”
MPs on no-confidence motion
Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal – First they wanted discussion. When we were ready, they brought up the issue of rules. Now they have brought a new issue that the PM should come and start the discussion. I think these are all excuses.
Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Priyanka Chaturvedi – If we are using the no-confidence motion to bring the PM to Parliament, we will be doing a great service to this country.
RJD MP Manoj Jha – We know numbers are not in our favor, but democracy is not just about numbers. Perhaps he can be forced to say something on the pretext of a no-confidence motion. This would be the biggest achievement.
