In easy words: The date is July 26 in New Delhi.
Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla has agreed to consider the motion of no confidence in the council of ministers. This motion was proposed by Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi, who received support from over 50 opposition MPs.
Gogoi submitted a notice of no-confidence against the government regarding the Manipur issue before 10 am on Wednesday.
The Speaker asked Gogoi to present a proposal in the Lok Sabha and show that other MPs are in favor of it. This happened when the Lok Sabha resumed after the first break in the morning.
According to Rule 198 of the Lok Sabha procedures, for a no-confidence motion to be approved, it needs support from 50 members when the Speaker asks for a vote in the House.
Once there is approval, the topic is allowed to be debated.
Birla agreed to the motion and said he would talk about it with the leaders, schedule it for discussion, and tell the House when and what time the debate will happen.
According to the rules, the Speaker must announce and allow a vote on the topic of discussion within 10 days of it being brought up.
Several big opposing parties including TMC, Left, NC, DMK, NCP, and JDU agreed with the motion.
Sonia Gandhi, who used to be the leader of Congress, was present in the House. The group of ministers sitting on one side of the parliament was led by Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The House took a break until 2 pm after accepting the request.
