LS paralysed: No-confidence motion could not be taken up

The notices for no-confidence motion could not be taken up in the Lok Sabha even today as uproar over various issues led to a wash out of proceedings for the fifth consecutive working day.

The House saw two adjournments till 1 PM before being adjourned for the day without transacting any substantive business.

Disruptions started as soon as the House met for the day with members raising various issues ranging from Telangana to UPSC exams. The uproar led to the adjournment of the House till noon.

Similar scenes were witnessed when it re-assembled, forcing another adjournment. The situation was no different when the House met again at 1 PM.

As slogan-shouting continued, Speaker Meira Kumar kept pleading with agitating members to restore order so that the fate of three notices for no-confidence motion could be decided.

She said she wanted to ascertain whether leave of the House could be granted for consideration of the three notices given by six Congress members from Seemandhra region as also TDP and YSR Congress.

Kumar said she could take up the matter related to the notices only if the House is in order.
However, as several members continued with the slogan-shouting in the Well, she said the matter could not be taken up because of the din and adjourned the House for the day.

The total number of members who have signed the respective notices for no-confidence is 13 while for consideration of a notice, there is a mandatory requirement of support from 55 members.
