The Lok Sabha MP from Kerala’s Wayanad, Gandhi, is expected to appear in the Parliament and open the debate on no-trust vote from Congress side around 12 noon on Wednesday (9 August).
Gandhi is back as an MP after the Supreme Court stayed his conviction in a criminal defamation case over the ‘Modi surname’ remark.
Tuesday witnessed heated exchanges between the BJP and the Opposition after Congress Gogoi opened the debate with a strong statement urging the Centre for action over the ongoing Manipur crisis.
Gogoi said the Opposition bloc – I.N.D.I.A was forced to bring the no-confidence motion against the government to break Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “vow of silence” on Manipur.
The Congress, backed by the other members of its alliance I.N.D.I.A, has called for a no-trust vote against the government.
