Opposition plans to give the Congress-led government a run for its money with the BJP-led NDA making it clear that it would coordinate with other parties in bringing a cut motion on the issue of price rise when the Budget session of Parliament resumes tomorrow.
The second part of the session is set to begin on a stormy note with NDA demanding suspension of Question Hour in
both Houses and a debate on the Dantewada Naxal attack that claimed lives of 75 CRPF personnel, failing which it may
At a meeting of NDA MPs chaired by its Working Chairman and BJP leader L K Advani, it was decided that the opposition would bring cut motions on issues related to price rise.
"NDA will also issue three-line whips to its MPs to get the cut motions passed in the Lok Sabha. All cut motions will
be related to price rise which affects the common people and national interest," Deputy Leader of BJP in Rajya Sabha, S S Ahluwalia told reporters after the NDA meeting.
NDA is likely to disrupt Parliament proceedings in the first hour of its commencement on the naxal attack.
"NDA will give a notice in both Houses tomorrow to demand suspension of the Question Hour and ask the government to
issue a statement on the Maoist violence which is assuming dangerous proportions," Ahluwalia said.
The opposition has also decided to demand action against Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor for his
alleged "misuse of office" for a lady friend in the Kochi IPL team case.
"We will demand that the corruption charges against Tharoor for misusing his office for a lady friend be
investigated. He has also violated the oath of office," Ahluwalia said.
NDA will also oppose the Seeds Bill which finds mention in tomorrow's list of business for the Rajya Sabha. NDA termed the Bill anti-farmer.
