Lawmakers owe this to the people and the makers of the Constitution, says Modi. 

New Delhi: Hours before the Lok Sabha is to take up the no trust vote against his government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today called for a disruption-free and constructive debate in the House.

“Today is an important day in our Parliamentary democracy. I am sure my fellow MP colleagues will rise to the occasion and ensure a constructive, comprehensive & disruption free debate,” he tweeted.

“India will be watching us closely,” he said.

The Modi government is expected to have a smooth sailing when it faces the first no-confidence motion in four years in the Lok Sabha.
