New Delhi: The Congress initiated the No-Confidence Motion debate against the Narendra Modi government, focusing on Manipur’s situation and accusing the government of division on the Day 1 of the debate.

Here’s a concise rundown of key points:

  1. Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi, opening the debate, alleged the government’s silence on Manipur prompted the opposition to bring the no-confidence motion. He claimed the government created a divide in the state.
  2. Gogoi dismissed the government’s comparison to past instances, mentioning Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s Gujarat visit during 2002 riots. He emphasized three reasons for PM Modi’s silence: state government’s failure, national security issues, and reluctance to admit a mistake.
  3. Union Minister Kiren Rijiju criticized the motion’s timing, suggesting it doesn’t align with India’s global stature. He questioned Congress’s Manipur concern, reminding them of their previous neglect of the northeast.
  4. BJP MP Nishikant Dubey highlighted PM Modi’s remarks that the motion isn’t about distrust but about trust within the opposition. He humorously referred to Sonia Gandhi’s roles.
  5. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi raised questions about Rahul Gandhi’s withdrawn lead speaker status and mentioned Rahul’s upcoming speech date.
  6. NCP’s Supriya Sule criticized BJP, questioning its claim of being distinct. She highlighted economic and social issues and labeled the government anti-farmer.
  7. Kiren Rijiju, Amit Shah, Nirmala Sitharaman, Smriti Irani, and Jyotiraditya Scindia will speak, along with ten other BJP MPs during the debate.
  8. The government referenced past instances of violence in Manipur with no parliamentary statement and underscored the urgency of the motion in light of current events.
