Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to reply to the motion of thanks on the President's address in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday.
The Lok Sabha has allocated a time of over 12 hours to discuss President's Address.
The reply to the Motion of Thanks debate got underway in Lok Sabha on Tuesday and the debate was initiated by BJP Chittorgarh MP CP Joshi.
The Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha took up debate on the motion of thanks on the President's Address after three days of stalemate over the Hindenburg-Adani row with BJP members talking of initiatives of the Modi government and the opposition members accusing the ruling alliance of not paying adequate attention to issues such as price rise and unemployment.

During the address by the Joshi in Lok Sabha on Tuesday, Opposition MPs, especially from the DMK protested in the well of the House, after he allegedly glorified the abolished practice of 'sati'. The house was adjourned for a few minutes after DMK MP A Raja rushed to CP Joshi's chair after the intervention of Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and subsequently after the clarification by Joshi the matter was settled.
Soon after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi launched a strong attack on the government in the wake of the Hiendenberg-Adani row linking the rise of the Adani group to that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and alleging that "rules were changed" in some sectors to favor the businessman.
Rahul Gandhi, who was the first opposition leader to speak during the debate on the motion of thanks to the President's address in the Lok Sabha, said the relationship with Gautam Adani began many years ago when Narendra Modi was Gujarat Chief Minister and added that "real magic" started after 2014 and the businessman rose from 609th to second spot globally in the rich list.
"Relationships begin many years ago when Narendra Modi was Gujarat's Chief Minister...one man stood shoulder to shoulder with PM Modi, he was loyal to the PM and helped Mr Modi construct the idea of a 'Resurgent Gujarat'. The real magic began when PM Modi reached the national capital in 2014," Rahul Gandhi said addressing the Lok Sabha.
The BJP rejected Rahul Gandhi's allegations both inside and outside the House. BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said the allegations against the government were baseless and the whole ecosystem of Congress was based on twin pillars "of deal and commission".
