No-confidence motion will pressure the Govt to come before the Lok Sabha and answer the questions: Raghav Chadha

Opposition is bringing a no-confidence motion against Govt in Lok Sabha today.

 AAP MP Raghav Chadha says, “Many a time in India's Parliamentary history, critical instruments of debate, dialogue and discussion within Parliament are exercised.
