BJP-led NDA will move an Adjournment Motion in Lok Sabha, demand suspension of Question Hour in Rajya Sabha on February 23 in protest against price rise and ask Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee to come clear on the talks with Pakistan.

The Budget session of Parliament will commence on February 22 with the Presidential Address.

"On February 23, NDA will bring an Adjournment Motion in the Lok Sabha and demand suspension of the Question Hour in the Rajya Sabha on the issue of price rise," Deputy Leader of BJP in the Upper House, S S Ahluwalia said.

BJP will also seek a clarification from the government on its unilateral initiative for Foreign Secretary-level talks with Pakistan.

"BJP feels the UPA government is deviating from India's policy on Jammu and Kashmir. In 1994, a resolution was passed in Parliament that Jammu and Kashmir was an integral part of India. The Prime Minister and Minister for External Affairs should clarify in Parliament that they will abide by the 1994 resolution," Ahluwalia said.

Other issues to be raised by NDA during the Budget session of Parliament include the Naxal menace, the Ranganath Committee report recommending reservation for Muslims, the issue of autonomy to Jammu and Kashmir as suggested by the Saghir Ahmed Committee report and the Pune blast.
