"India will be watching us closely," he said.
The Modi government is expected to have a smooth sailing when it faces the first no-confidence motion in four years in the Lok Sabha.
Though the numbers are heavily stacked against the opposition, the Congress and other parties have indicated that they are keen to utilise the debate to attack the government on a range of issues including farm distress, slow economic growth and rising incidents of lynching.
The BJP is seeking to expand the guaranteed support of 313 members after estranged ally Shiv Sena said it will back the government.
