The BJP on Tuesday said it would settle for nothing less than an adjournment motion in Lok Sabha to discuss the price rise issue and warned that Government's refusal would lead to a "confrontation".

"The Parliamentary Party of BJP today decided that we will stick to our demand for an adjournment motion to discuss the issue of price rise and hike in prices of fuel...," party's deputy leader in the lower house Gopinath Munde told reporters in Delhi.

"It is a serious issue related to the common man and anything less than an adjournment motion would not serve the purpose," he said.

Munde said if the Government failed to heed to BJP's demand, it would lead to a "confrontation".

Munde said the party will demand a debate on price rise issue in Rajya Sabha under Rule 168, which also entails voting, and request the Chair to keep aside the Question Hour.

"Almost all opposition parties have demanded an adjournment motion and discussion on the issue under any other rule will be unacceptable," he said.
