Lok Sabha session disrupted, Opposition's no-confidence motion stalled again
The Telugu Desam Party and the Yuvajana Shramika Rythu (YSR) Congress Party could not move the no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government as the proceedings in the Lok Sabha were disrupted again by protesting members, eventually leading to Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourning the House.
Sumitra Mahajan, as she adjourned the House, said, "The country has never seen such a sorry state, this is not proper. House is not in order and so no-confidence motion cannot be moved."
Meanwhile, the Rajya Sabha was adjourned too, within minutes, thanks to protests in the House.
In Lok Sabha, this is the third time, in a row, that the TDP and YSRCP are failing to table the no-confidence motion against Narendra Modi-led NDA government. This is the thirteenth day in Parliament without both Houses transacting anything substantial.

Narendra Modi government, however, informed its willingness to discuss any issue in Parliament.
Both TDP and YSR Congress Party had asked legislators to show up and to be ready to counter BJP allies in case they create ruckus.
