Today's meeting of the prime minister with his colleagues in the union ministries raises hope for the economy even amid the apprehension that the nation might not be able to break the chain of the COVID contagion by 14 April

New Delhi: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has asked TDP MPs and senior party leaders to impress on other opposition parties the need to bring in the no-confidence motion against Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre.

The TDP chief was reviewing the happenings in Parliament during a teleconference with his party MPs and senior leaders last night.

Naidu sought to know why the party MPs and leaders were not taking up discussion on the no-trust motion.

“Be alert and react according to their moves. Ensure that MPs of other parties also attend the House. Get no-trust motion notices issued by other parties as well,” Naidu told his MPs.

It was the 11th consecutive day yesterday when the proceedings in the Lok Sabha were washed out, and the second day when Speaker Sumitra Mahajan could not take up the notices for the no-confidence motion.

TDP leader Thota Narasimham had moved a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha in the morning of 16 March, hours after party president N Chandrababu Naidu announced in Amaravati that the party was exiting the National Democratic Alliance.

The motion can be accepted only if it has the support of at least 50 members in the House.

Two TDP ministers had resigned from the Narendra Modi government following the Centre’s refusal to grant Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh.

“We will support a no-confidence motion, whoever moves it. We will be ready for that and our 16-17 MPs will fully support that. We will cooperate with whoever fights for the State’s rights,” Naidu said in the State Assembly.

With the BJP alone having 274 members in the 536-member Lok Sabha and enjoying the support of allies, the no-confidence motion, if accepted, is certain to be defeated but it has the potential to put the saffron party in a tight corner in the State.

The Lower House was adjourned for the day amid noisy protests by members from various parties, with Mahajan saying “since the House is not in order, I will not be able to bring it… I am sorry” and then adjourning the proceedings.

The TDP MPs informed Chandrababu Naidu that only TRS and AIADMK members were in the well of Lok Sabha yesterday but Trinamool Congress, NCP, AAP, RJD and Communist parties extended support to us.
