No-Confidence Motion: Trust deficit as Rahul Gandhi hits, hugs & winks 21.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Hugs and winks aside, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday posed some difficult questions to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, drawing ire and hoots from the treasury benches. Questions on Rafale, demonetisation, and GST aside, the lasting last word of Gandhi's speech was the accusation that PM Modi was not a "chowkidar" (watchman) but a "bhagidaar" (participant) in the corruption in the country. Not yielding to the continuous disruptions from the treasury benches, Gandhi started his speech by speaking of "jumla strikes" by the Modi-led NDA government. He said the "jumla strikes" were BJP's political weapon, and spoke of the BJP's unfulfilled promises of 2 crore jobs per year, the imposition of GST and the rising cases of violence against women. Launching a scathing attack on Modi directly, he said a certain gentleman benefitted from the Rafale deal even when the man had a debt of Rs 35,000 crore on him. He accused Modi of being untruthful and said the prime minister is not even looking him in the eye. ...

No-Confidence Notion: PM Narendra Modi wins trust, and a hug 21.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
The Opposition's no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government was defeated by a heavy margin, after a marathon 12-hour debate that saw both sides launching scathing attacks against each other. The BJP-led NDA got 325 votes in its favour, more than the ruling coalition's original number of 313. This was when its ally Shiv Sena's all 18 MPs boycotted the proceedings. The number swelled with neutral players such as AIADMK siding with the government, a big indicator ahead of next year's general elections. The halfway mark went down to 226 as Biju Janata Dal and TRS also did not vote, helping the government. Replaying to the debate as the last speaker in the Lok Sabha, Modi gave a point-by-point rebuttal to attacks by Congress president Rahul Gandhi. Earlier in the day, Rahul, in his sharpest attack on the PM, raised issues such as the Rafale deal, GST, demonetisation and foreign policy. In his counter, the PM repeatedly targeted Congress' over its "arrogance and dynastic politics". He did not ...

BJP pushes privilege motion against Rahul Gandhi 21.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
BJP moved a privilege motion against Congress president Rahul Gandhi for "misleading" the Lok Sabha through his "false allegations" against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government. If the Lok Sabha Speaker admits the motion, it will go to House's Committee of Privileges that may issue a notice to Gandhi and hold a hearing. If he is found guilty, he may face brief suspension from the House. BJP MP Pralhad Joshi submitted the motion, demanding action against Gandhi for making "serious, baseless and wild allegations" regarding the Rafale deal. Gandhi said the PM was a "bhagidaar" (collaborator) in cases of alleged corruption, not a "chowkidaar (guard). He also alleged that the PM cheated his own Army in dealing with China on the Doklam issue. BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi heads the Committee of Privileges. "His behaviour was childish. He has grown old but it is unfortunate that he has not grown up. It is unfortunate that the president of Congress is so ill-informed and immature," Parliamentary Affairs ...

No-Confidence Notion: Shiv Sena's clear msg to BJP - Can't take it for granted for 2019 21.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
Shiv Sena's move to abstain from voting did help the government as it brought down the number needed to prove majority, but the upset ally has embarrassed the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) by not voting against the Opposition's no-trust motion. The Maharashtra party has dropped adequate hint to BJP that it cannot be taken for granted and it is free to chart its own path for next year's Lok Sabha elections. Sena signaled that it will go solo and BJP should not waste time offering an olive branch. Sena, which is playing a second fiddle at the Centre and in Maharashtra while sharing power with BJP, also sent a message that the party will not rock the boat and destabilise the government. Instead, it reiterated that it will continue to corner the government on people's issues. Sena said it was the second-largest group in NDA and therefore its stand had assumed extraordinary significance. Sena had withdrawn its earlier whip that had asked all its 18 MPs to support the government. It later issued a ...

NDA government defeats no-trust motion comfortably 20.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
The NDA government tonight sailed through the no-confidence motion against it in the Lok Sabha, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi dubbing it a result of the opposition's "arrogance" and its 'Modi hatao' mindset as he hit back at Rahul Gandhi over "childish" behaviour. The government got the support of 325 members, while 126 backed the motion with 451 MPs present in the House. Members of the Shiv Sena, BJD and TRS were not present in the House when the voting took place. Several AIADMK members opposed the motion, in a boost to the NDA. Replying to an over 10-hour debate on the motion, Modi appealed to all parties to defeat it and accused the Congress president of "crushing" the truth and "playing with national security" by making allegations against him on the Doklam issue and by speaking of graft in the Rafale aircraft deal. Hours after Gandhi left everyone surprised by walking across to the Prime Minister's chair to hug him, Modi sought to turn the tables on him, saying he appeared to be in a hurry to ...
