The NDA has comfortably defeated the no confidence motion triggered against it by the TDP, the ex-member of the NDA which ditched the membership over the Andhra Pradesh special status issue, with the support of nearly 325 members, proving that the Saffron regime is still capable to appeal non-NDA votes despite the persistent attempt of some opposition parties including the Congress Party to project the NDA regime as a adherent Hindu fundamentalist regime.
Only less than 126 lawmakers have supported the no confidence voters. The Congress Party, the prime opposition party of the Lok Sabha, has clearly failed to bring all opposition parties together against the NDA to overthrow the government.
Notably, the BJD has staged a walk out minutes before the commencement of the discussion over the no confidence motion, citing that the no confidence motion and the discussion around it would not benefit the state of Odisha, in which the BJD led government rule.
The result of the no confidence motion clearly shows how the political parties will react in the crucial General Election, which is going to take place in the year 2019.
In a sense, the BJP has re-demonstrated its strength in the house and in the politics with the help of the platform created by the TDP for the opposition parties such as the Congress.
