Chandigarh:The government-led by Chief Minister on Wednesday defeated the no-confidence motion moved by the Congress party.As many 55 members of the legislative assembly voted against the motion while 32 members were in favour of the no confidence motion.
 
The Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda claimed the ruling dispensation has lost people's trust while moving the motion.
 
Talking to reporters on Friday, Hooda had said, "The no-confidence motion will make people aware which MLA stands with the government and which MLA stands with farmers."
 
He said the party was required to move a no-confidence motion because the BJP-government has "lost people's confidence" and the coalition government, "is taking anti-people decisions one after the other".

Opposition misleading the farmers: Khattar
Prior to the voting, while replying to the proposed No Confidence Motion in the Vidhan Sabha, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said the Opposition has no substantial grounds other than relying on political gimmicks. In the name of farmer protest, the Opposition is trying to mislead the farmers continuously.
 
Addressing the House, Mr Khattar said instead of igniting the protest, an initiative should be taken to end it. He said it is an old tradition of the Congress party to introduce the No Confidence Motion. Elaborating on it, he said whenever the Opposition does not like anything they tend to introduce No Confidence Motion.
 
He further said the reason for the consistent success of the present government is because proposing of the No Confidence Motion by the Opposition actually helps to cement a concrete bond of the Government with the public. He said the Opposition is continuously making efforts to raise doubts on public-friendly policies introduced by the Central and State Governments.
The Chief Minister elaborated that the Opposition started the chain of mistrust initially by raising doubts on the authenticity of the EVMs while approaching elections. They had also raised doubts on the surgical strikes conducted in Pakistan thereby lowering the morale of the defence forces.
 
He said the arrogance of the Congress is reflected from their behaviour as they believe that government can be formed or collapsed at their will. While taking a jibe at the Opposition in a poetic way he quoted, ‘Aag lagane walo ko nahi hai khabar, Rukh hawa ka badala toh khak vo bhi ho jayenge’. While concluding he said that after the fall of the No Confidence Motion in the House questions will now be raised on the solidarity within the Opposition.(UNI)
