In fact, the opposition parties are demanding a detailed discussion on the Manipur violence in Parliament and the statement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Due to this, since the beginning of the monsoon session on July 20, there has been disruption in both the Houses of the Parliament. According to sources, in such a situation, after considering several options, the opposition parties decided that no-confidence motion would be the most effective way through which the government could be forced to discuss the issue. Sources associated with the opposition also say that within the Rajya Sabha also, the process of besieging the government on the issue of Manipur will continue.

Meanwhile, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla had called the ruling party and the opposition on Tuesday for the purpose of ending the deadlock in Parliament, but no solution could be found in it. In the lower house, both Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Home Minister Amit Shah have said that the government is ready to discuss this issue. However, the opposition is adamant on the demand for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement and subsequent discussion in this matter.

On the other hand, Union Home Minister Amit Shah also wrote a letter to the opposition leaders of both houses, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary of the Lok Sabha and Mallikarjun Kharge of the Rajya Sabha, in an effort to break the deadlock, appealing for cooperation in discussing the very sensitive issue of Manipur. The government is ready to discuss the issue of Manipur and seeks cooperation from all parties cutting across party lines, he said. I hope that all parties will cooperate in resolving this important issue.
