The Congress, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, which together have more than 50 members, are likely to support the motion.

The ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu on Friday sacked party spokesperson KC Palanisamy hours after he said that AIADMK MP's will support the no-confidence motion against the BJP-led NDA government if Centre did not take a favourable stand on Cauveri. Win for democracy & people of AP."Mr Owaisi also tweeted saying that he has signed on the No-Confidence Motion and said his party will support the motion not only for the failure to give Special Category Status to Andhra but also "failure to fulfill their (Modi government) promise to provide employment to youth and for injustice to Muslim women and minority". The Budget Session of the Parliament has been repeatedly adjourned over their demand. A leader, preferring anonymity, told IANS that the party will take a decision on the issue. "So we withdrew from the NDA and I have issued a letter on no-confidence motion to the Speaker at 9.30 am". He asked for it to be included for business on Friday.

Congress leaders Shashi Tharoor wondered why was the government running away from taking up No-Confidence Motion in the House where it has a brute majority.


Telugu Desam Party has chose to officially exit the National Democratic Alliance due to failure in fulfilling the promises made in the State Reorganisation Act. Till recently TDP was the party of the NDA government...

By my dismissal, the two leaders have proved that they are slaves to the BJP. "We believe TDP is finding the going tough in Andhra Pradesh, they are seeing a defeat for themselves in 2019 and they want to use this as an alibi to really retrieve lost political ground".

After the Telugu Desam Party pulled out of the BJP-led NDA government and made a decision to move a no-confidence motion against the government, the AIADMK has come under tremendous pressure from the opposition parties and farmers association to support the motion against the Modi government which has been remaining non-committal on setting up of the Cauvery Management Board within six weeks as per the Supreme Court's February 16 order.
