Lok Sabha Speaker acknowledges notice for no-confidence motion against the Modi government.

On Wednesday, the Lok Sabha Speaker, Om Birla, accepted the notice for a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, which was submitted by the Opposition coalition known as the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA).

The no-confidence motion was submitted by Gaurav Gogoi, a Congress lawmaker from Assam, at 9:20 am. The purpose of the motion is to press Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address various issues, including the situation in Manipur.

According to parliamentary rules, any no-confidence notice submitted before 10 am must be taken up for consideration on the same day. However, due to the ongoing acrimony and disruptions in Parliament and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s refusal to address the Manipur issue, it is unlikely that the motion would be discussed in the Lok Sabha on the same day.

Speaker Om Birla assured that he would follow the prescribed rules and hold discussions with all parties. He also promised to provide information on the schedule for the discussion.

In an effort to resolve the deadlock in Parliament, Union Home Minister Amit Shah reached out to Opposition leaders on Tuesday, proposing a discussion on the situation in Manipur. In response, the INDIA coalition leaders deliberated on the idea of presenting a no-confidence motion.

However, it is important to note that the government enjoys the support of at least 332 lawmakers in the Lok Sabha, giving it a significant majority. This ensures that the government is unlikely to be toppled by the no-confidence motion, as it has enough supportive members in the lower house of Parliament to withstand any potential threat posed by the motion.
