No-confidence motion LIVE Updates: Amid the heavy sloganeering from the opposition MPs over the Manipur issue, the Lok Sabha was adjourned till 12 noon while the Rajya Sabha was adjourned till 2pm.
The day 2 of the debate on the no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government saw heavy chaos from the opposition bench.
Meanwhile, both the houses observed a minute's silence on Quit India Movement and Japan's Nagasaki nuclear bomb attack's anniversary. Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge remarked that Tushar Gandhi, the great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, has been arrested on the anniversary of the Quit India Movement.
The lower house on day 1 of the debate saw the Congress and Union Ministers locking horns over the situation in Manipur which has been witnessing ethnic clashes since May.
Congress accused the government of creating a great divide in Manipur.
Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi, who led Congress’s charge on Tuesday during no-confidence motion debate in Lok Sabha on the Manipur issue, said the Opposition was compelled to move the no-confidence motion against the government to break Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "vow of silence" on Manipur.
"We are compelled to bring the no-confidence motion. This was never about numbers but about justice for Manipur. I have moved the motion that this House expresses no confidence in the Government. I.N.D.I.A. has brought this motion for Manipur. Manipur wants justice," Gogoi said.
Meanwhile, initiating his party’s debate on the no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha, BJP MP Dubey took a jibe at Sonia Gandhi and also hit out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
"This no-confidence motion has been brought. Why has this been brought? Sonia ji (Gandhi) is sitting here...I think she has to do two things - "Bete (son) ko set karna hai aur Damad (son-in-law) ko bhent karna hai" (She wants to set up his son [Rahul Gandhi] and wants to gift his son-in-law). ...That is the base of this motion," Dubey said.
The YSRCP, Shiv Sena, JDU, BJD, BSP, BRS, and LJP were allotted a total of two hours, divided according to the number of MPs from each party in the House.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to give a reply on August 10.
The no-confidence motion moved by Opposition parties of I.N.D.I.A bloc was accepted by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on July 26.

Why Naga People's Front has opposed the Forest Conservation (Amendment) Act 2023
India’s new law to regulate forest conservation is “anti-tribal” and the Nagaland state assembly should pass a resolution against it, the Naga People’s Front has demanded.
The Forest (Conservation) Amendment Act received the assent of President Droupadi Murmu on August 4, a notification by the law ministry said on Saturday. The law will come into effect once the central government notifies it in the gazette. The Rajya Sabha passed it on August 2 after it was cleared by the Lok Sabha on July 26.
“The forest bill is now a law. It has been passed by both houses of Parliament. At one glance, people will appreciate the bill because it is for sustainable development. But there are many hidden agendas in that bill. It completely undermines the powers of the state government. Earlier, they would need state’s permission for forest related matters. Now they don’t,” said Nagaland lawmaker Küzholüzo Nienü, also known as Azo Nienu, leader of the front.
“This is in direct conflict with Article 371 A, a special provision that grants a degree of autonomy to Nagaland,” he said. “We have demanded that a suitable law be passed to counter the Forest Amendment Act and its impact be discussed during the next assembly session on September 11,” he added.
