The government reckons that a no-confidence motion can come up in the Monsoon session of Parliament beginning on July 24.
A senior Minister said the opposition could utilise the session to target the government through such a motion. Generally, such motions are brought at the end of the session.
While reports had it that BJP planned to bring a no confidence motion against Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee, the saffron party had denied any such move.
The month-long session is being held in the backdrop of the serial blasts in Mumbai and suspicion of Pakistani hand in the incidents, agitations by opposition as also Left parties on the issue of price rise and questions being raised on the Indo-US nuclear deal.
