New Delhi: The Lok Sabha Friday could not take up notices for no-confidence motion against the NDA government moved by Andhra Pradesh parties, with Speaker Sumitra Mahajan saying there was no order in the House and adjourned the proceedings for the day amid vociferous protests over various issues.
In the nearly four-year rule of the BJP-led NDA alliance, this is the first time that no-confidence motion notices have been moved against the government.
The notices were moved by YSR Congress and TDP, who have been demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh, an issue on which the latter today quit the ruling alliance.
The no-confidence notices were moved by YSR Congress member Y V Subba Reddy and TDP’s Thota Narasimham.
The Lower House proceedings were washed out for the 10th consecutive day following incessant protests and sloganeering by various parties, including TDP, YSR Congress, AIADMK and RJD over multiple issues, including special status for Andhra Pradesh and banking scam.
Congress members were also seen standing at their seats.
Since Parliament reconvened on March 5 after Budget Session recess, the Lok Sabha has been witnessing disruptions on a daily basis. PTI
