 The Lok Sabha would take up debate on the no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government brought by the TDP and opposition parties, with Speaker Sumitra Mahajan admitting the notice.

"The House will take up the debate (on the motion) on Friday, July 20th. The discussion will be held for the full day, followed by voting on it," Mahajan announced in the House when it reassembled after the lunch break on the first day of the Monsoon Session of Parliament.

Meanwhile, UP Chairperson Sonia Gandhi refuted the view that the opposition does not have the numbers.

 When asked about the opposition's lack of numbers, Sonia Gandhi said, "Who says we don't have the numbers?"

Reacting to Gandhi's comment, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that the Congress had shown similar kind of arrogance during Atal Ji's tenure & they had to face the consequences. "Indians have elected PM Modi as their leader and he has their confidence. We are ready to face them."

Union Minister Ramdas Athavle said that such over-confidence will serve no purpose. "We will show clear a majority on July 20. We will win comfortably and show our strength to the opposition," he said.

The Opposition parties brought in no-confidence motion against the government on issues like Grant of special status to Andhra Pradesh, lynchings, atrocities against women and dalits and dilution of a law meant for Scheduled Caste.

During the Zero Hour, she had named all members from TDP, Congress and NCP, among others, who had moved similar no- confidence motion notices and said TDP's Kesineni Srinivas would move his motion as his party was the first to raise it.

With Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge demanding that the largest party be allowed to move the motion, Mahajan said as per rules, the party which raises the motion first, gets to move it.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said the government is prepared to face the no-confidence motion brought in by several parties. "The entire country has confidence on Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he said.
