Opposition in no mood for no-trust move

No opposition party is in the mood to move a no-confidence motion against Kiran Kumar Reddy’s government during the two-day Assembly session beginning on Nov 30 though all of them seem to have a unanimous opinion that it had failed on all fronts and therefore had no moral authority to continue anymore.

While the political parties have their own individual reasons to avoid a no-confidence motion, the two main common concerns are the short duration of the session and the importance of the agenda -- it is called to accord statutory status to the SC and ST Sub-plan. No party is ready to move a no-confidence motion and run the risk of being labelled as anti-SC and ST. Says government whip Gandra Venkata Ramana Reddy: “We hope it will be a smooth session. We do not expect any party to move no-confidence motion since the session is called to discuss and pass the SC, ST Sub-plan Bill.”

TDP deputy leader in the Assembly G Muddukrishna Naidu said, “We have not taken any decision. We cannot give notice for no-confidence motion for a two-day session. On top of this, the Speaker too may not have time to table the notice for support of one-tenth of the members of the Assembly.”

“Why is YSR Congress, which boasts of the support of a number of legislators, not taking the initiative to parade them before the governor and ask him to direct chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to prove his strength on the floor of the Assembly?” he asked.

The TRS which said it would not hesitate to support a no-trust motion if moved by any other party, has indicated that though they had no trust in the government vis-a-vis Telangana statehood issue, the party would be concentrating more on taking part in the debate on the SC-ST sub plan.

The YSRC, which does not want early elections with its leader Jagan Mohan Reddy being in jail, may not move a no-confidence motion on its own though party leader. The MIM has not thought about it so far.
