No-Confidence Motion: Shiv Sena Said To Back Modi Government In No-Trust Vote
The Shiv Sena will vote in favour of the Narendra Modi-led government during the opposition-sponsored no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha tomorrow, according to a source close to Party Chief Uddhav Thackeray.
A formal announcement will be made by this evening, the person told PTI.
The motion will be the first since the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government came to power four years ago. Speaker Sumitra Mahajan's decision to accept the motion moved by former BJP ally Telugu Desam Party and others came on the first day of the Monsoon session.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu had sought the support of other parties for the motion, citing the NDA government's "non-fulfilment of the promise" to grant special status to his state.
Meanwhile, Sena leader Sanjay Raut today said his party will disclose its stand on the floor of the House. "A decision has been taken. We will let it be known inside the House," he said.
