Amid signs that it was leaning towards the government, the BSP on Monday said that it would take a decision tomorrow on issuing a whip to its MPs over the cut motion on finance bill.
BSP sources indicated that the party is unlikely to support the cut motions being tabled by BJP and other opposition parties, including arch-rival SP, against rise in prices of petrol and diesel.
The BSP Parliamentary party will meet tomorrow to take a final decision on the issue, they said.
Members of BSP remained seated in Rajya Sabha on Monday when other Opposition parties stalled the proceedings over the issue of alleged tapping of phones.
Meanwhile, the Samajwadi Party, which is participating in a country-wide strike called by 13 parties against price rise tomorrow, said it is yet to take a decision on issuing a whip.
"We will take a decision in our meeting tomorrow (on issuing whip to MPs)," SP Chief Whip Shailendra Kumar said here.
Both SP and BSP have 21 members each in Lok Sabha.
