A bench comprising justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta made it clear to the government that "no further time" would be granted to it for finalising the welfare scheme.
When the no-confidence motion was taken up on Friday against the BJP led NDA government, all eyes during the first half were on Rahul Gandhi. He had in fact said sometime back that the day he speaks in Parliament there would be an earthquake.
