TDP to back no-trust motion against BJP-led Govt in Lok Sabha

Parliamentary Party on Monday chose to stay away from the lunch hosted by Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on the occasion of "Gudi Padwa" and said the Chair's ruling on failure to take up the No Confidence Motion, was "not acceptable". The Speaker clarified that No Confidence Motion can be taken up only when the house is in order but certain party MPs continued their protests.

The government, meanwhile, has expressed confidence that the notices, even if they are admitted, will be defeated given its strength in Lok Sabha.

He also alleged that the TDP and TRS (Telangana Rashtra Samithi) were creating a logjam in parliament on behalf of the treasury benches.

Following a continuous uproar over the demand of "No confidence motion" in the Lok Sabha, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Monday adjourned the Lower House till Tuesday. The support of several opposition parties for the no-trust motion means there would be no problem in it being accepted.

The TDP leader assured the Muslims that the government will hire best lawyers and spent whatever money required to protect the four percent reservation enjoyed by the community in education and government jobs. We have spoken to TRS floor leader Jitender Reddy and member Kavitha and requested them to cooperate and help maintain order in the House for 15 minutes as this is life and death for AP.

Earlier on March 8, two TDP MPs - P Ashok Gajapati Raju and Y S Chowdary resigned from the Union Cabinet over central government's refusal to grant Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh.

"It's the responsibility of all the parties to support us".

This happened for the second consecutive day in the Lok Sabha after the House was adjourned and the No Trust motion moved by TDP and YSR Congress Party could not be taken up on Friday, as well.

As the opposition counted its numbers, parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar said the whole country has full confidence in Modi as does the House. The Centre, he said, should keep the promises made as per bifurcation Act. "We will support neither the government nor the Opposition", Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant said. Though the first two weeks of the last phase of the Budget Session have been a virtual washout, the government has managed to get some key bills and the budget passed amid a din through a voice vote without a debate.
