Congress’ no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government has been accepted by the Lok Sabha, promising a clash between the opposition and the ruling party. The motion was admitted after Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi garnered support from 50 members, as required by the rules. The Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Om Birla, announced that a date for a discussion on the motion will be determined after consultation with leaders from all parties.
Amidst these developments, the government moved forward with its legislative agenda, introducing six bills in the Lok Sabha. Four of these bills focused on Jammu and Kashmir. The acceptance of the no-confidence motion has stimulated an atmosphere of intense debate and discussion in parliament.
In the Lok Sabha, opposition MPs are demanding a discussion on the Manipur issue in the presence of Prime Minister Modi. They have staged a protest by raising slogans, leading to the adjournment of the Lok Sabha till 2 pm. Meanwhile, the leaders of the INDIA alliance met in the LoP (Leader of Opposition) Chamber to strategize for the session’s proceedings.
When questioned about the lack of support from all INDIA alliance parties in the no-confidence motion, CPI MP Binoy Viswam acknowledged the significance of unity among opposition parties. He stated that while he had raised objections, the Congress leadership had understood and agreed to rectify the situation. Viswam emphasized the importance of all parties coming together to fight against the ruling BJP government both inside and outside the Parliament.
Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury expressed frustration at the lack of opportunities for his party to voice their concerns in Parliament. He demanded that Prime Minister Modi address the Manipur issue during a detailed discussion in Parliament. Chowdhury remarked that the no-confidence motion was a last resort for the Congress, as they believe that it is the duty of the Prime Minister to address the country on such significant matters.
AAP MP Raghav Chadha announced that MPs from the INDIA alliance would wear black clothes as a symbolic protest against the atrocities and violence in Manipur. Chadha urged the government to dissolve the state government, expressing solidarity with the people of Manipur during their time of distress.
In addition to the no-confidence motion, several MPs have given notices in both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha to discuss the Manipur and border situations with China. The proceedings in Parliament are expected to be intense, with multiple issues on the agenda.
Meanwhile, the Rajya Sabha is scheduled to discuss bills related to the amendment of the Cinematograph Act and the Jan Vishwas Bill. In the Lok Sabha, the Jan Vishwas Bill and the Repealing and Amending Bill will be discussed.
In other news, there are concerns about Himachal Pradesh’s Malana Dam, as it has reached its capacity and poses a flood threat to nearby areas. Authorities are closely monitoring the situation to ensure the safety of residents.
As the Monsoon Session of Parliament continues, there is heightened anticipation for the discussions and debates that will unfold. The outcome of the no-confidence motion against the Modi government remains uncertain, but the opposition is determined to make their voices heard and hold the ruling party accountable for their actions.
