Dr Manmohan Singh today won the confidence motion in Parliament. There was great drama in the house when three BJP MPs pulled out wads of currency notes alleging that it was the bribe money given by Samajwadi Party to vote for the motion.
There was uproar in the House and was briefly adjourned. The House met again at 6.30 pm. The opposition started shouting and the reply by Prime Minister could not be heard. He submitted his speech to the Speaker.
At 7.15 pm call for division was given. 275 voted for the confidence motion. Thus UPA continues in power and Dr Manmohan Singh became only the 4th Prime Minister to win the vote of confidence in Parliamentary history.
