Modi survives no-trust vote, Rahul's hug-wink theatrics

No confidence motion Modi calls for disruption-free debate

Congress President Rahul Gandhi after his speech on No Confidence motion at the Lok Sabha walked across the aisle, and hugged PM Narendra Modi.

In his speech during the no-confidence motion against the Modi government in the Lok Sabha, Rahul Gandhi said "we are all victims of BJP's jumla politics". Modi then called Rahul back to his chair and fondly patted him on his back. The debate on the No-Confidence Motion is scheduled to start in the Lok Sabha at 11 am and seven hours have been alloted for it. Congress said it has the support of other opposition parties which has been brought "to show the mirror to the government", highlight the various issues concerning the people of the country and ensure that the truth reaches them.

Modi himself is known for his bear hugs, embracing world leaders such as U.S. President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

He said that Modi had a close relationship with a particular businessman and the Rafale contract was given to him after taking it away from HAL.

"The NDA will be united in vote against the motion".

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi in his speech slammed the Modi government over its performance in four years so far. But in characteristic Modi fashion this allegation of overconfidence being behind the no-confidence motion also included mocking former Congress president Sonia Gandhi's Italian accent, a reference to her claim that she had enough numbers to win the day. But the Prime Minister did not move and tried to shake hands instead.

Rahul, who was the first speaker from the Congress side, did not use the opportunity to reach out to Andhra Pradesh on special status or any of the issues raised by the Telugu Desam Party, which was the main aim of the no-confidence motion. After the Prime Minister's visit, the price went up magically to ₹1,600 crore.

The BJP believes that the government will get the support of as many as 314 MPs in the Lok Sabha.

Speaking on security agreement with India, the statement said, "France and India concluded in 2008 a security agreement, which legally binds the two states to protect the classified information provided by the partner that could impact security and operational capabilities of the defence equipment of India or France". The Prime Minister has not been truthful. What a wonderful sight, you hugged Modi Ji.
