Process has to be completed within 10 days of admitting no-trust move Hyderabad: The Assembly speaker N Manohar Rao may be facing a slightly tricky situation in regard to the no- confidence motion. Perhaps for the first time he would be receiving two notices of such a motion against the government on the same day, in case both the TRS and YSRCP choose to submit their notices on Thursday. However, in case that happens, he may have to give precedence to whoever submits its first. Normally all the opposition parties consult each other, mobilize enough strength and give the notice for no- confidence against the government. According to old timers, there is no bar on the number of notices for no -confidence to be given during one session if the issues were different. As per the rule book, even one member can give the notice mentioning the specific subject matter which makes him lose the confidence in the government. As per the House Rules, the notice should be served 30 minutes before the House assembles for the day. The Speaker will have to put it before the House and seek the leave to admit it. If ten percent of the members of the total strength of the House (it comes to 30 in case of AP) stand up in support of the notice, the motion gets admitted. Then the Speaker has to convene a Business Advisory Committee meeting to fix a date for discussion. However, the entire process should be completed within ten days from the date of admitting the motion. Since the first phase of budget session is only for 11 days, the Speaker will have to dispose off the motion before it adjourns for recess on March 26.
