PM Modi will address the no-confidence motion.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to respond to the no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha on Thursday, with his speech expected in the late afternoon. The Defense Minister, Rajnath Singh, conveyed to the House on Wednesday that the Prime Minister would address the motion on August 10.
The deliberations on the motion, which commenced on August 8 following its initiation by Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi, have featured impassioned speeches from notable figures such as Rahul Gandhi from the Congress, Union Minister Smriti Irani, and Home Minister Amit Shah.
During a speech lasting over two hours on Wednesday evening, Amit Shah acknowledged the “shameful” incidents in Manipur and mentioned that both he and the Prime Minister had worked into the late hours to resolve the situation.
Simultaneously, as outlined in the day’s agenda, the government plans to seek the passage of the Advocates (Amendment) Bill, 2023, in the Lok Sabha. Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal will present the bill for consideration. The bill aims to make revisions to the Advocates Act of 1961 and has already been approved by the Rajya Sabha.
