The Left parties will press for cut motion voting on the issue of fuel prices in the Lok Sabha.

They also plan to push for a proposed amendment to the Finance Bill seeking to do away with the hike in customs and excise on petroleum products affected through a notification on February 26.

To coordinate the plans for cut motion in the Lok Sabha and the general strike against price rise (both on February 27) the non-BJP, non-Congress parties — TDP, BJD, SP, BJD, and AIADMK — are meeting here on Thursday.

Though the Left is likely to press for another cut motion — on the issue of fertiliser prices — they are not likely to insist for voting on the issue. The Left, however, believes that the BSP’s indecisiveness on the issue is likely to save the government from a tight spot.
