Lok Sabha

No-trust motion not taken up in LS

115

The Lok Sabha today could not take up notices for a no-confidence motion against the NDA government moved by YSR Congress and TDP parties.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said there was no order in the House and adjourned the proceedings for the day amid vociferous protests over various issues.

In the nearly four-year rule of the BJP-led NDA alliance, this is the first time that no-confidence motion notices have been moved against the government.

The no-confidence notices were moved by YSR Congress member Y V Subba Reddy and TDP’s Thota Narasimham.

The Lower House proceedings were washed out for the 10th consecutive day following incessant protests and sloganeering by various parties, including TDP, YSR Congress, AIADMK and RJD over multiple issues, including special status for Andhra Pradesh and banking scam.

Congress members were also seen standing at their seats.
