The no-confidence motion will be debated in the Lok Sabha today. The ruling BJP has been firming ties with its allies to make the Congress regret its decision to seek no-confidence motion in the House.
BJP has reached out to disgruntled allies to gather their support and even reached out to friendly parties to abstain if they can’t support. According to reports, the ruling party at the Centre has also spoke to some of its lawmakers who were expected to skip the trust vote on account of poor health, or otherwise.
The Telugu Desam Party (TDP), which was the first to seek the no-confidence motion, will initiate the debate today and Rahul Gandhi will be the Congress’s lead speaker.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will reply to the debate, is expected to use the occasion as a launching pad for the 2019 campaign.
