The no-confidence motions
against the government, pitched by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party and its arch-rival YSR Congress, were not taken up as Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day following uproar. As lawmakers protested and booed, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said she could not bring the motion unless there was order. While most opposition parties, including the Congress, announced support for the motion, the government has the numbers to remain safe. The opposition said the move is about sending a message. It would also help the two south parties consolidate their position back home ahead of next year's assembly elections.
