The opposition parties on Wednesday moved a no-confidence motion against the PM Modi government in the Lok Sabha, despite the fact that they are likely to fail the numbers test.
Adding to it, Congress MP Pramod Tiwari says, “…There is just one number that is important – 10%, meaning 51, 52 or 53 (MPs)…When INDIA brings the Motion, the number will obviously be higher. The motive for bringing this Motion is that we get to speak on the failures and the matters related to the security of the country besides inflation and unemployment…”
It needs to be noted that a no confidence motion is taken up for discussion only it has support of at least 50 MPs
No-confidence motion will be discussed in Lok Sabha at 12 noon today
As per the Lok Sabha rules, after a notice of no confidence is moved, it has to be listed in the business of the day and as many as 50 MPs in Lok Sabha have to support it for it to be taken up for discussion in the House. After assessing the same, the Lok Sabha Speaker allots date and time for discussion.
Earlier today, Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi filed the no confidence motion notice against the PM Modi Government in Lok Sabha. It was filed at 9.20 in the notice office. Apart from Congress, BRS also moved a similar motion against the PM Modi government in Lok Sabha today.
The Speaker has agreed to take the motion for discussion at 12 noon.
