New Delhi: The Centre on Friday announced that it was ready to face a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha, saying that it had the numbers and was confident of defeating it.

"We are ready to take up everything. We have always told the opposition, please cooperate in running the House to discuss banking irregularities and each and every issue, including confidence or no-confidence motion," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said after the TDP quit the ruling NDA and tabled a no-confidence motion against the government.

He said the whole country had confidence in Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "The House also has full confidence. Therefore, there is no issue. We are fully confident."

Asked about the Congress charge that the government was egging on parties like TRS and AIADMK to disrupt the House proceedings to avoid a no-confidence motion, Kumar said the Congress was suffering from selective amnesia.

"If you go through records in the past, the Speaker has rejected no-confidence motion when the House is not in order. Even before, that has been the practice. They have to correct their memory. The BJP, the NDA and Prime Minister have numbers in the House and confidence of people outside in the country."
