Protests, Booing Stall Parliament, No-Trust Moves Not Taken Up

New Delhi: The no-confidence motion against the government, pitched by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party, was not taken up as Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day amid protests by lawmakers. 

Mr Naidu, the BJP's biggest ally in south who walked out of the NDA last week, and his arch-rival YSR Congress have demanded a no-trust vote. While half-a-dozen opposition parties, including the Congress, announced support for the motion, the government has the numbers to remain safe. The opposition says the move is about sending a message. It would also help the two south parties consolidate their position back home ahead of next year's assembly elections.
