The Lok Sabha began debating the motion of no confidence on Tuesday, and it will do so through Thursday. Tejashwi Yadav, a senior RJD figure and the deputy chief minister of Bihar, criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday for being silent on the unfolding issue in Manipur and demanded that he address it in Parliament. He argued that the BJP was required to give an explanation for the prime minister’s position.
Yadav criticized the saffron party for reportedly bringing up the names of his family members during the discussion of the motion of no confidence in the Lok Sabha on the violence in Manipur. “The PM’s silence on Manipur is shocking. Why is he maintaining a studied silence when Manipur is burning? He must break his silence and speak in Parliament on the violence,” he stated in reply to repeated questions by reporters.
During the talks in Parliament on Tuesday, Yadav criticized the saffron party for allegedly collecting the names of his family members. “The debate in the Lok Sabha is on a no-confidence motion on Manipur … But I don’t know why BJP leaders dragged the names of my family members during it. They (BJP leaders) talk of baseless things.
“The BJP leaders have been totally exposed. People know everything about them … The party(BJP) will face a humiliating defeat in the coming Lok Sabha polls,” he said. The Lok Sabha began debating the motion of no confidence on Tuesday, and it will do so through Thursday. To compel Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address the Manipur issue, the motion was brought out by the Congress against the BJP-led administration.
