A very huge loss of face!First 'jadu ki jhappi' (hug), then a sly wink. Later point-by-point rebuttal. And last but not the least, division over the proposal. What is the result? 126 against 325. But why the loss of face?
The total number of NDA members in the current Lok Sabha is 315. How many votes against the motion? 325. So, from where did these additional 10 votes come? The answer is simple. TRS or AIADMK members have voted against the motion.
After this 'no-confidence' motion, the effort to bring opposition unity will go haywire. It is a huge loss of face.
I was surprised by the dramatics of Rahul Gandhi in the morning. I am impressed by the point-by-point rebuttal of Narendra Modi at night. Excellent!
