Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the Lok Sabha today on the third day of the no-confidence motion debate against the Union government. The opening remarks of the no-confidence motion were given by Congress' Gaurav Gogoi instead of recently reinstated Congress MP Rahul Gandhi. 

However, on Day-2 of the no-trust debate, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi led the discussion from the Opposition side and accused the Modi government of (expunged) India in Manipur. After Rahul Gandhi's address, Union Minister Amit Shah addressed the lower house in the evening and appealed to the Opposition not to politicise the Manipur issue.

Speaking on the unrest in Manipur, Home Minister Amit Shah said that while the events which took place in the northeastern state are "shameful," what is more shameful is the politics being played over the issue. "I agree with the Opposition that there has been unprecedented violence in Manipur. Nobody can stand for that. The events have shamed humanity. But what's more shameful than the events in Manipur is the politics around them," he said, adding that the BJP had brought peace to the northeast.

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman spoke on the progress and contributions made through PM Modi led government all over India. Asaduddin Owaisi, the president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) made statements of a divided India. 

Meanwhile Rahul Gandhi arrived in Parliament. Ahead of entering he refused to speak on parts of  his speech that were expunged from yesterday's Lok Sabha speech.

PM Modi is expected to participate in the motion of no-confidence at 4 pm.
