The Congress party has decided to move a no-confidence motion against the Modi government in the Lok Sabha and is likely to do so on Tuesday next week, as per reports. The principal opposition party’s move follows TDP and the YSR Congress, who moved no-confidence motions last week.

The notice of no-confidence is yet to be taken up in the house as Lok Sabha is facing continuous adjournment due to protest by the Opposition parties on the issue of PNB fraud, Andhra Pradesh special status, Cauvery water dispute and lately on Supreme Court’s judgement on SC/ST Act.

The Lok Sabha, as well as Rajya Sabha, have been facing persistent disruptions since the beginning of the second leg of Budget session earlier this month. Friday marked the third straight week of disruptions in the house.

As per the reports, the Congress party has issued a three-line whip to all its MPs in the Lok Sabha to ensure their presence.

The motion will be moved by Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, who is reaching out to other opposition parties to garner support for the motion.
