The party has issued a three-line whip to all its MPs in the Lok Sabha to ensure their presence, the sources added.

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, they said.

The TDP and the YSR Congress have moved no-confidence motions but these have not been taken up as the House has not been in session.
