    The Narendra Modi government won the no-confidence motion in the lower house of parliament on Friday night after a marathon debate that lasted for 12 hours. Congress president Rahul Gandhi's unprecedented hug and wink act in Lok Sabha became the biggest talking point of the day during the keenly-watched no-ctrust motion debate in Lok Sabha. After launching a scathing attack on PM Narendra Modi and his government, Rahul Gandhi walked up to PM Modi and gave him a hug. The Congress president's points created an uproar in the house. At night, PM Modi gave a point-by-point rebuttal to Rahul Gandhi's speech. During his reply, PM Modi urged all parties to reject the no-confidence motion.The BJP has moved a privilege motion against the Congress president over his speech. The debate that will last for close to 7 hours was kicked off by Jayadev Galla of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) that moved the no-trust motion.

    He also sought to turn the tables on the Congress said, insisting that it was a floor test for the grand old party and not the government.

    He went on to say “Congress has no faith in the election commission, judiciary, in the RBI, in the International Agencies. They have confidence in nothing.”

    Interesting!
