No Confidence Motion News Live Updates: The debate on no-confidence motion, moved by the I.N.D.I.A. bloc against the central government, is in its last leg today and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to address the House. The last two days of the motion witnessed a fierce battle between the ruling and the Opposition coalitions over the Manipur violence and other raging issues .
Rahul Gandhi gave his first speech for the motion after his MP status was reinstated. From his last speech in the Lok Sabha to Bharat Jodo Yatra, he spoke on range of topics. On Manipur issue, he accused the central government of ‘killing Mother India in Manipur’. “Indian army can bring peace in Manipur in one day but you are not using them. You want our soldiers to die. If PM Modi is not listening to the heart of India, whose voice does he listen to?”
Responding from the government’s side, Union home minster Amit Shah hit out at the Opposition for ‘doing politics’ over the violence in the northeastern state.
Meanwhile, several Bills from both Houses have been passed including the contentious Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2023, Digital Personal Data Protection Bill, 2023, Jan Vishwas (Amendment of Provision) Bill, 2023, and Anusandhan National Research Foundation Bill, 2023, this week.
