Rahul Gandhi to open no-confidence motion debate in Lok Sabha
Starting Tuesday, the Lok Sabha is set to witness a fierce debate on the no-confidence motion against the BJP-led central government
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will start the no-confidence debate against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government in Lok Sabha on Tuesday, people aware of the matter said.
The development comes a day after Gandhi was reinstated as the Lok Sabha MP, three days after the Supreme Court suspended his criminal defamation conviction in the Modi surname case.
Gandhi will open the discussion while party MPs Gaurav Gogoi, Manish Tewari and Deepak Baij are likely to speak after him.
Gogoi said they are looking forward to hear from Gandhi in the Lower House.
“We look forward to what Rahul Gandhi has to say. He has visited Manipur and in the meantime, he has met with the cross sections of Indian society. He knows the state of the economy and the ground situation in Manipur. So, he has a very valuable perspective which we all look forward to hear,” Gogoi said.
Gandhi made his last speech in the Lok Sabha on February 7, 2023, when he had participated in the debate on the President’s speech.
Meanwhile, the parliamentary meeting of the BJP took place earlier in the day with PM Modi and national party president JP Nadda in attendance.
The meeting was held to chalk out a strategy ahead of the discussion on the no confidence motion scheduled to take place later on Tuesday.
