Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said his party would stick to its demand for debate with voting in the upper house as well.

"This is double standards... They have allowed debate in the Lok Sabha but not in Rajya Sabha. They know they don't have the numbers (in the upper house), so they are trying to escape.

"The BJP will stick to its demand for a debate with voting in the Rajya Sabha as well," he added.
