CHENNAI: The no-confidence motion, moved by the TDP and YSR Congress is to put shortly on LS; against the NDA government. This will be a smooth show for the BJP which enjoys a majority on its own. But for the ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu, which may be obligated to withdraw or vote in favor of the BJP, its decision could prove risky for its prospects to back home.
“We are ready to face no-confidence motion as we have support in the House. We are confident”, said Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar
With Tamil Nadu’s Cauvery water sharing the heated discussion with Karnataka heating up, a confidence vote in favour of the BJP-led government or even self-denial, which would mean covert support, could be powerful ammunition in the hands of the DMK led opposition as well as archrival AMMK, led by T T V Dhinakaran.
It will be a futile exercise for the AIADMK too, as the second largest opposition party in Parliament after the Congress, the AIADMK, with 49 MPs, will get a hold of the decent time slot to push on the no-confidence motion. AIADMK aspires to use this opportunity to raise the AIADMK’s vote-stock in Tamil Nadu on the issue of Cauvery dispute.
