In a significant move, Gaurav Gogoi, the prominent leader from India’s North East and Deputy of the Lok Sabha, spearheaded a no-confidence motion against the Central government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The motion was triggered in response to the escalating acrimony and disruptions witnessed within the Parliament.
The Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) declared its intention to introduce the no-confidence motion, with a specific focus on holding Prime Minister Modi accountable for pressing issues, particularly the situation in Manipur.
The decision to bring forth the no-confidence motion came after days of tense parliamentary proceedings, further exacerbated by the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) refusal to address the Opposition’s concerns regarding Manipur.
During a floor strategy meeting, leaders representing the member parties of the INDIA alliance deliberated on the proposal to present the no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha.
However, despite the motion’s initiation, the Narendra Modi government remains relatively secure, enjoying substantial support with at least 332 Members of Parliament (MPs) in the Lok Sabha, indicating a clear advantage in numbers.
