BJP on Sunday said it would bring an Adjournment Motion in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday on price rise and expressed hope that other opposition parties would stand united on this and other issues in the monsoon session of Parliament that begins on Monday.
"BJP Parliamentary Party executive held a meeting under the chairmanship of senior leader LK Advani. It has decided to bring an Adjournment Motion in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday on price rise and complete failure of the government in controlling it," the party's Deputy Leader in Rajya Sabha SS Ahluwalia said.
The Left parties have already announced they will bring an Adjournment Motion on Tuesday.
Sources said BJP and NDA leaders are in touch with other opposition parties to put up a united fight against the government in Parliament on issues like price rise, Bhopal gas tragedy and fleeing of UCC CEO Warren Anderson, Civil Liability for Nuclear Damages Bill, economic blockade of Manipur and the situation in Kashmir.
"We believe the entire opposition will join hands to grill the government and put them in the dock," Ahluwalia said.
BJP Deputy Leader in Lok Sabha Gopinath Munde said the opposition was united during the national strike against price rise on July 5 and this unity would continue.
Increase in prices of petroleum products would be also be an issue, he said.
However, there are apprehensions within BJP that the party may have to fight alone on the issue of "misuse of CBI" by the government.
