TMC MP Mahua Moitra’s powerful address highlights the opposition’s no-confidence motion to break government silence on Manipur. The motion signifies more than distrust; it’s about having confidence in the nation. Prime Minister’s response awaited.
In a strong statement, TMC MP Mahua Moitra highlighted the significance of the opposition’s no-confidence motion, aiming to break the government’s apparent silence regarding the situation in Manipur. She addressed the issue of silence prevailing in the nation’s governance and the way elected representatives are often told to remain silent.
Breaking the Code of Silence:
Moitra emphasized that the no-confidence motion serves as a means to shatter this “code of silence,” which she believes has been maintained not just within the Parliament but also in states like Manipur. She noted the analogy between the government’s behavior and the famous phrase “tum abhi chup raho” (you stay quiet for now).
Challenging the Government’s Approach:
The TMC MP pointed out the PM’s infrequent presence in Parliament, citing that he tends to speak only on the last day of debates. She questioned the government’s attitude towards both Parliament and states like Manipur, where the recent violence has taken place.
A Motion of National Confidence:
Moitra underlined that this no-confidence motion signifies more than just a lack of confidence in the government; it represents a call for having confidence in the entire nation. The motion seeks to address not only the specific issue of Manipur but also the broader aspect of having faith in the well-being of the country.
Final Day of Debate:
Today marks the culmination of the three-day debate on the no-confidence motion raised by Congress concerning the situation in Manipur. As the debate wraps up, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to respond to the motion at 4pm, bringing closure to this significant parliamentary discussion.
