The Budget session of Parliament, which resumed on Monday after a four day break, ended without transacting any business after both houses were adjourned till tomorrow following protests.
Ever since the session resumed after the recess, daily disruptions have marred proceedings and the House has failed to transact any business amid clamour by parties to take up the no-confidence motion against the government.
The no trust motion against the Modi government was pitched by the Telugu Desam Party, which had pulled out of the NDA recently.
Several other parties, including the TRS and Congress have also given notices for a no-trust vote. This is the first time in the last four years that the largest opposition party, Congress, has moved a no-confidence motion.
Wednesday (March 28) was the 13th straight day when the House could not transact any business, barring the addresses by various leaders for those members retiring from Rajys Sabha. Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has disallowed all no-confidence motions, citing a ‘disorderly House’.
