Agartala, Apr 6 (UNI) The no-confidence motion against Speaker Ramendra Chandra Debnath was defeated by voice vote in the Tripura Legislative Assembly here today.
The House, which reassembled after 12 days, took up the vote of no confidence motion as per schedule.
The no-confidence motion was moved by the Opposition parties, including the Congress, about a fortnight ago in protest against the suspension of two Congress Legislators, including the Leader of the Opposition.
Participating in the debate, Chief Minister Manik Sarkar said Mr Debnath had always upheld the cause of Parliamentary democracy as the Speaker of the House.
Opposition parties, however, alleged that the Speaker had curtailed the democratic rights of the Opposition and had favoured the Treasury Bench.
