  • Budget Session of Parliament Lok Sabha Rajya Sabha adjourned for ninth day as protests continue

"The party will take a decision on the issue and we can not comment on that now", the AIADMK leader told IANS, preferring anonymity.

As the uproar continued, Mahajan said she was duty-bound to take up the notices for no-confidence motion but could not as the House was not in order. Currently, the BJP has 272 MPs in Lok Sabha. If accepted, it will be the first no-confidence motion moved against the Modi-government. The no-confidence motion requires support of 50 members to be admitted.

The Congress too has conveyed that they will be supporting the two motions.

"Bringing in a no-confidence motion will be of no use because there is a majority government". "I made it clear that while I am against triple talaq, it is not correct to arrest the husband and jail him as his family and children will suffer", said Naidu.

Earlier in the day, TDP MPs and AIADMK MPs protested in the premises of Parliament. BJP's ally Shiromani Akali Dal said the party supports granting of special category status to AP, but is not in favour of the no-confidence motion.

When their notices were not taken up last week, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar had argued that they could not be due to the House being not in order, with members of several parties raising slogans in the Well.

After a week of chaos, the Parliament was reassembling on Monday with a packed agenda only to witness the Rajya Sabha adjourned till Tuesday after protests by TDP and AIADMK members.

Soon after the TDP quit the NDA, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee welcomed the Chandrababu Naidu-led party's move and urged the opposition parties to stay united. He said he waited for four years to get a special status for the state as was promised at the time of passing of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014.

The New York Times has also reported that Donald Trump's lawyers have advised him to refuse an interview with Mueller . But the President is insisting that he wants to as he reportedly believes that he has done nothing wrong.

Naidu, also the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief, accused the BJP of provoking some people to make allegations against him for demanding justice to the state.

They include a sulking Shiv Sena (18), which has still not said which way it will vote in a no-cofidence motion by the TDP.

As an indication of the political impact of the Andhra Pradesh issue coming into the limelight, the BJP's National General Secretary, Ram Madhav, told the media his party was ready to do more than giving the state special status.
