Congress' motion of no confidence against Jai Ram Thakur government was defeated in assembly on Thursday. The debate on the no-confidence motion brought by the Congress and the CPM against the BJP-led state government began at 11 am on the second day of the ongoing monsoon session.

The speaker told the House on Wednesday that the notice was given at 9.50 am under Rule 278 of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly.

"The notice stated the House expresses no confidence in the council of ministers as the government fails on all fronts," the speaker had said.
