Government defeats no-confidence motion in a voice vote

On Thursday, the NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi successfully defeated a no-confidence motion in parliament following a passionate address by the Prime Minister during the culmination of a three-day debate.

The no-confidence motion was vanquished through a voice vote orchestrated by the lower house speaker, as seen in televised images. This occurred shortly after opposition Members of Parliament, including Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress party, exited the chamber.

In his response to the no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed gratitude, stating, \”The citizens of our country have repeatedly demonstrated their trust in our government, and I extend my thanks to all of them.\”

Prime Minister Modi underlined, \”The history of no-confidence motions has consistently been in our favor; this one will also undoubtedly contribute to us securing an unprecedented mandate.\”

He emphasized, \”While there were crucial bills for the welfare of our people that warranted discussion, the opposition seemed more interested in political maneuvering.\” The Prime Minister further asserted that the opposition prioritizes their party\’s interests above national interests; their thirst for power outweighs their concern for the well-being of the populace.

Taking a jab at the Congress party, Prime Minister Modi remarked on the notable absence of their prominent leader from the roster of speakers. He acknowledged the generosity of Amit Shah, who allocated time for Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury to speak. He humorously speculated, \”I\’m unsure of the circumstances that led Congress to sideline Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury—perhaps a call was made from Kolkata.\”

Highlighting the government\’s accomplishments, Prime Minister Modi declared, \”We\’ve led a government free from scandals, empowering the youth of India, providing them the confidence and opportunities to soar high in the open sky.\” He stressed that the nation\’s primary goal should be unwavering dedication to its development.

Citing data from organizations such as NITI Aayog, IMF, and UNICEF, Prime Minister Modi shared progress in India\’s fight against poverty and the positive impact of initiatives like \’Swachh Bharat\’ on the lives of the underprivileged.

Prime Minister Modi tackled criticism of his government\’s international image, asserting that despite efforts to besmirch it, the truth prevails on the global stage.

He took a swipe at the opposition, suggesting they possess an enigmatic blessing—their ill will toward certain individuals seems to bring good fortune to them.

Drawing attention to the revival of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Prime Minister Modi lauded its resurgence after alleged efforts to incite negativity among its workforce. He also responded to opposition skepticism regarding India\’s economic growth, reiterating his vision of India becoming the world\’s third-largest economy in the government\’s third term.

Accusing the opposition of betraying the nation, the Prime Minister spotlighted how various states, including Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Bihar, Tripura, and Odisha, have consistently expressed a lack of confidence in the Congress party.

Discussing the situation in Manipur, Prime Minister Modi condemned a grave crime against women and pledged the government\’s commitment to restoring peace and confidence in the state.

Taking aim at the Congress party\’s lack of understanding of the Northeast\’s sentiments, the Prime Minister highlighted his numerous visits to the region as a testament to his dedication.

In his final remarks, Prime Minister Modi criticized the newly formed opposition alliance, characterizing it as self-aggrandizing and driven by dynastic politics, contrary to the principles upheld by India\’s revered freedom fighters.

He concluded by labeling the alliance a harbinger of policy paralysis, nepotism, instability, corruption, appeasement, and regression—an antithesis to India\’s progress over the centuries.
