BJP is ready to face no-confidence motion: Ananth Kumar

It, however, alleged that TDP's move was driven by its own political compulsions, and said the no-confidence motion will be futile as the NDA government enjoys a majority.

The no-confidence motion against the government, which was pitched by the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party, was not taken up by Lok Sabha, which was was adjourned for the day because of the protests by lawmakers. At least 50 members have to back the motion for it to be admitted.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told reporters before the House met that the government had the numbers to defeat the motion.

He claimed that TDP was the first party to raise its voice against triple talaq bill tabled in the Parliament, terming the bill was a deliberate attempt of bias against Muslims.

Once a notice is given, the speaker reads it in the House and asks those who are in favour of it. However, the life of the common man has not become any better in the past four years. Parties like Congress, Left, Trinamool, AIMIM and RJD have openly come out and said that they would support the motion. Moreover, senior and experience leader and his party proposing and executing NCM gives sort of confidence to other national parties too to support the motion rather than novice parties doing so. Currently, the BJP has 272 MPs in Lok Sabha. We are trying to gather as much support as possible so a debate happens.

Stating that he is fighting for the rights of five crore people of the state, the chief minister said the TDP would not rest till achieving the goal of special category status. The BJP also has the support of several allies like the Shiv Sena and the Akali Dal.

They include a sulking Shiv Sena (18), which has still not said which way it will vote in a no-cofidence motion by the TDP.

Opposition particularly TDP and AIADMK MPs continued to disrupt proceedings of the Rajya Sabha, following which it has been adjourned till tomorrow. He added, that even in the last budget justice was not done.

The Parliament secretariat received three notices on no-confidence motion against the Centre for its refusal to grant special category status to Andhra Pradesh.
