The Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, set to reconvene tomorrow, are likely to be once again dominated by the no-confidence motion filed against Narendra Modi govt by YSR Congress, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the Congress.
The second half of the budget session of Parliament has been a complete washout since the commencement of protests from the Congress, All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), TDP and the YSR Congress Party on various issues stalling the proceedings.
The Congress has given the notice to move a no-confidence motion against the Modi government, becoming the third party to do so after YSRCP and TDP. With the Lok Sabha not being in order, the no-confidence motion of YSRCP and TDP have not been taken up so far. The government has stated that it was willing for a discussion on the no-confidence motion.
As the parliament logjam persisted for nearly two weeks, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday accused the Narendra Modi government of being “afraid” to face the no-confidence motion moved against it. “In parliament, a no-confidence motion against the Modi government has been moved. For the past 10 days it has been stalled because the government is afraid,” Gandhi said at a public rally in Mysuru.
The Budget Session of the Parliament will end on April 6, giving the government only 10 more days to get some work done, including passage of the Financial Bill 2018.
