In the wake of BJP's protests over his Hindu terror remark, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde is likely to talk to senior party leader Sushma Swaraj to find a way out to ensure smooth functioning of Parliament during the Budget Session beginning tomorrow.

Sources said Shinde has conveyed to Swaraj, the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha, that he will talk to her to find a way out on the saffron terror issue to ensure smooth functioning of Parliament.

"Both sides will make efforts to find a way out for the house to function," BJP veteran L K Advani said after the all-party meeting convened by Speaker Meira Kumar ahead of the Budget Session.

BJP today staged a strong protest over Shinde's "saffron terror" remarks and said the comments were part of a conspiracy to divide the nation for votebank politics and demanded an apology.

BJP President Rajnath Singh questioned the Home Minister's intentions in making such a provocative statement.

"This comment of the Home Minister is part of a conspiracy to divide the nation for votebank politics," Singh said while addressing a large number of protesting party workers at Parliament Street here today.
