Parties in the ‘INDIA’ coalition have filed a no-trust motion against the Union government amid a impasse in the parliament over the violence in Manipur. A separate no-confidence motion has been filed by Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), which is not a part of the ‘INDIA’ coalition.
The ongoing Manipur violence has been a key reason for the continuous logjam in both the Houses of Parliament since the Monsoon Session began on July 20.
“Today, it has been decided that we would not have any other alternative but to resort to a no-confidence motion because the government is not accepting the demand of the opposition to have an elaborate discussion with the Prime Minister on Manipur. He should make a statement on the Manipur violence as he is our leader in the parliament,” news agency ANI quoted Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary, the Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha, as saying on Tuesday.
“We have moved the No Confidence Motion on behalf of our party. Since the commencement of the session all Opposition leaders had been demanding discussion on Manipur issue. If the PM speaks on this, there will be peace among people of the country – so we made efforts,” said BRS MP Nama Nageswara Rao.
