India’s Parliament rejects no confidence against motion

Arun Jaitley- Rahul Gandhi

In the fag end of his speech during the no-confidence motion, Rahul said: "You (BJP) have a lot of anger against me".

The no-confidence motion hardly threatened Narendra Modi's four-year old government, but it presented an opportunity for all political parties to position themselves for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

A total of 325 MPs opposed, while 126 MPs supported the no-trust motion moved by the TDP, a former BJP ally, during the division after a marathon 12-hour debate.

Authorities have ordered almost 250,000 shell companies to be shut down and another 200,000-250,000 are on their radar, Modi said, blaming the previous Congress government of shielding corrupt people.

In a point-by-point rebuttal to allegations levelled against him by Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called the Nehru-Gandhi family "thekedar" (contractor) and "saudagar" (trader), and said the no-confidence motion against his government by "some people" was only to spread instability in the country through "negative politics".

Parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar has described as "childish" Rahul Gandhi hugging the Prime Minister.

Responding to Gandhi's allegations, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said, "The agreement of secrecy was signed by the then Defence Minister and this agreement clearly mentioned that the value of the jets can not be disclosed".

Donald Trump’s disgraceful bow to Russian Federation
Asked if there was anything he thinks Russian Federation should take responsibility for, Trump said: 'We're all to blame'. Former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel also criticized Trump for his behavior, claiming that he "failed America today".

The Congress, he said, was so insensitive that it was dismissing the valour of the Indian soldier who was ready to give his life to protect the country's unity and integrity. But, I want to say this from the bottom of my heart that I am very grateful to the Prime Minister, the BJP and the RSS. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stated that the details of the deal can not be revealed since a secrecy agreement was signed in 2008 with France and Rafale deal was also covered in it.

Earlier, Rahul Gandhi launched a blistering attack on the BJP mascot, accusing him of being a bhagidar" (collaborator) in corruption and not a "chowkidar" and saying people were victims of his "jumla' strikes.

"When the Chinese President comes to India, Modi sits with him on a swing in Gujarat". However after his scathing attack on Prime Minister Modi, Gandhi walked up to him, hugged and shook hands.

This statement comes in relation to a 2016 speech of Rahul Gandhi, where he said that the Parliament will jolt if he is given 15 minutes to speak. "He's not a chowkidaar (watchman) but a bhagidar (co-conspirator)", Gandhi said. Everybody knows the relationship that Prime Minister Modi has with a few business people, and everyone can see the amount of money that goes into his marketing.

Modi and Gandhi's running war of words has escalated since polls showed a decline in the BJP's popularity, fanning hopes of an opposition comeback in next year's elections after a Congress rout in 2014.

Congress later voted against Modi's government despite the brief bonhomie on the parliament floor.

He also said, "As a sign of protest we walked out of the Lok Sabha when the no-confidence motion was taken up for discussion".
