The 26-party ‘India’ coalition is preparing to move a no-confidence motion against the government. Where there are parties like Congress, Trinamool, CPM, DMK, JDU, JMM, NCP, RJD, National Conference and PDP.
If the no-confidence motion is implemented by then, it will be the first no-confidence motion by the opposition against the government since 2003. Last in 2003, a no-confidence motion was brought against former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s government.
According to the report of Hindustan Times, the Modi government is under pressure from the beginning of the new session of Parliament. Ethnic conflict has been going on in the northeastern state of Manipur since May this year.
In this ongoing conflict, mainly between Meitei and Kuki people, about 150 people died, more than 800 were seriously injured and more than 4500 houses in more than 290 villages were destroyed.
In the early days of the conflict (May 4), two Kuki women were brutally raped, but a video of it was released for the first time last Wednesday (July 19) night. It can be seen that two women are being paraded on the street. After the video of this barbaric incident went viral, there was a storm of condemnation across India.
The BJP government came under fire due to this incident. After the video went viral, PM Modi opened his mouth for a few seconds in the Parliament premises. However, the opposition demanded that Manipur should be debated in Parliament. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has to make a statement in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
But it has been informed by the government that they agree to debate on Manipur. But the Prime Minister will not make any statement. Union Home Minister Amit Shah will respond to the controversy. The opposition did not accept this proposal of the government.
According to reports, the leaders of the new ‘India’ alliance sat in a meeting on Tuesday morning (July 25) before the start of the Parliament session. The meeting was held at Rajya Sabha Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharg’s residence. In the meeting, the alliance leaders decided to move forward in demanding Modi’s statement in both houses of Parliament on Manipur. More vigorous movement will be made.
As a part of this, it has been decided to bring a motion of no confidence against the government. However, given the number of seats BJP has in the Lok Sabha, it is believed that there will be no problem in the no-confidence motion.
But experts believe that this motion of no confidence by the opposition will increase the psychological pressure on the government. Along with this, the opposition parties are trying to send a message to the people of the country.
