The India Congress has filed a no-trust motion against the Narendra Modi-led government in Lok Sabha amid parliament impasse over Manipur. The ongoing ethnic clashes in Manipur have been a key reason for the continous logjam in both of Parliament since the Monsoon Session began on July 20.
Although the no-confidence motion by opposition parties is bound to fail the numbers test, opposition parties argue that they will win the battle of perception by cornering the government on the Manipur issue during the debate.
They contend that it is also a strategy to make the prime minister speak in Parliament on the crucial matter even as the government has been insisting that Union Home Minister Amit Shah will reply to the debate on the Manipur situation. NDTV
