But there is no need for the government to lose sleep as the TDP and Jagan Mohan Reddy require the support of at least 45-50 MLAs to dethrone chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy.
Sunday saw hectic parleys, moves, counter-moves and feverish political drama as the players involved in the no-trust motion batted all day long to put up a 'healthy' score for and against the Congress government.
The crisis that stared at the Kiran Kumar Reddy government in Andhra Pradesh was blown with the 17-member Praja Rajyam Party group deciding to vote against the motion.
Praja Rajyam Party issued a whip to all his legislators asking them to vote against the no-confidence motion.
TRS issued a whip to its MLAs to vote against the Congress government.
"We have issued a whip against the Government and for the no-confidence motion," TRS MLA and party president K Chanderasekhar Rao's son K T Rama Rao said.
The Congress will have to muster the support of at least 144 members to defeat the no-confidence motion. On paper, Congress has 153 MLAs and the support of 17 PRP and seven MIM MLAs.
The parties which support the no-confidence motion include TDP- 87, TRS- 12, CPI- 4 , BJP- 2, one each from CPM, Lok Satta and YSR Congress and one independent.
