CPM submits notice of no-confidence against BJP government in Lok Sabha
After the Congress, the CPM submitted a notice of no-confidence against the BJP-led central government in the Lok Sabha on Monday.
New Delhi: After the Congress, the CPM submitted a notice of no-confidence against the BJP-led central government in the Lok Sabha on Monday.
The leader of the party in Lok Sabha, P Karunakaran, submitted the notice to the Lok Sabha Secretariat and urged Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to include the no-confidence motion in the revised list of business for Tuesday.
"Under rule 198 (b) of chapter XVII of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the Lok Sabha, I hereby give the notice to move the motion of no-confidence in the council of ministers in the House on 27 March, 2018. I request you to kindly include the motion in the revised list of business," the notice says.
According to the Left MPs, the notice is part of an opposition strategy to step up pressure on the NDA government in the Lok Sabha. On Friday, the Congress had become the third political party to move a no-confidence motion against the government in the Lok Sabha, following the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the YSR Congress.
Both the parties from Andhra Pradesh had moved no-confidence motions against the government recently for the latter's failure to honour the "promise" of granting special category status to the southern state and seeking a special financial package for it.
The BJP's spending report showed that it spent over Rs 221 crore in Uttar Pradesh, over Rs 23 crore in Manipur, Rs 43.67 crore in Uttarakhand, more than Rs 36 crore in Punjab and Rs 19 crore in Goa
Bommai said that the ultimate truth will always triumph and the attitude of talking without any evidence will not last long
"These are mere speculations and there is no basis for such talks. I don't know the source of such reports. I am only interested in uniting all opposition parties...," said the CM when asked if he had plans to enter the Lok Sabha contest from UP.
