Lok Sabha showdown likely today on no-trust move

TDP to back no-trust motion against BJP-led Govt in Lok Sabha

The Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP wrote to the Lok Sabha Secretary-General for moving a motion of "No-Confidence in the Council of Ministers" in the House.

The no-confidence motion was issued following the party's fallout with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the demand of special status category for Andhra Pradesh.

The BJP and PMK has one seat each in Lok Sabha from Tamil Nadu. The plan of the government is like pushing AIADMK MPs to protest in the Speaker's well and ensuring that the Speaker does not take up the No Confidence Motions since the house is not in order.

The airline did back off then-and it still seems highly unlikely these incidents involving dogs could endanger his position. United Airlines provoked worldwide outrage after a 10-month-old French bulldog died on one of its U.S. flights last week.

"Since the House is not in order, I will not be able to bring the notices in the House", says Mahajan said while adjourning the House for the day. "Opposition's no-confidence motion will be easily defeated by a 300-plus majority commanded by NDA in the Lok Sabha", Amit Shah asserted. The mathematics show that NDA is 332 as against 162 of TDP and YSRC led Opposition on the special status row.( not all 162 have signed for either the motions, though). "Also, will the Lok Sabha speaker allow the motion?" it asked.

The notices for no-confidence motion against the government could not be taken up today in the Lok Sabha as noisy protests by members from various parties disrupted proceedings, leading to adjournment of the House. Political analysts are also analyzing political strategies employed by various parties in addition to NCM motion aimed at Union government.

Since March 5, when Parliament had reassembled for the budget session after recess, the Lok Sabha has seen disruptions on a daily basis. "We are not in favor of no-confidence against the Modi government, we will support the government". Not to be outdone by its main rival in the state, TDP, a long-time BJP ally, then made a decision to break its ties over the issue and brought a no-confidence motion of its own. Interestingly, back in Hyderabad, TRS MLC Karne Prabhakar, while addressing media, said if at all the no-trust motion proposed by TDP and YSRC MPs comes for voting, the pink party members would vote against the Central government. The support of several opposition parties for the no-trust motion means it will be more than comfortably accepted as it will have the support of at least 50 members of Parliament (MPs) in the House, which is a minimum requirement. "Dont't test my patience.We are meeting, greeting and not doing anything and adjourning", he said.
