After failing in their attempt to trouble the government through a no-confidence motion on Friday, opposition parties were now looking to corner the government on Monday over the Alwar lynching incident. The BJP rivals were leaving no stone unturned to criticise the government over various mob lynching incidents reported from across the country.
CPI leader D Raja has given suspension of business notice in Rajya Sabha over the Alwar lynching incident, while BJP MP Vinay Sahasrabuddhe has submitted a notice for suspension of business in the house for flood and other natural calamities due to heavy rain in several parts of country. On the other hand, TDP MP YS Chowdary has given notice in Rajya Sabha under rule 267 to discuss AP Re-organisation Act.
Recently, 28-year-old Akbar Khan was lynched by a mob in Rajasthan's Alwar district on suspicion of cow smuggling. Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had condemned the incident and had assured an investigation in the case. The probe in the case was on Sunday handed over to an additional SP rank officer by the IG of Jaipur range. Three arrests were made so far.
Earlier on Friday, The NDA government defeated the no-confidence motion after a marathon debate that lasted for nearly 12 hours. When the division was held at 11.10 pm, the ayes for the no-confidence were 126 and the noes 325.
