NDA-Left to coordinate in Par over price rise, black money:BJP

Both the Left parties and the BJP will again move an adjournment motion in Lok Sabha tomorrow on issues of price rise and black money. A similar motion, demanding suspension of Question Hour to discuss these two issues, will also be moved by the two in the Rajya Sabha tomorrow.

This is likely to lead to disruptions and adjournments of the two Houses tomorrow as well. Two days of the winter session have been spent without any transaction of business.

Similar motions on the same issues were moved by the Left parties and the BJP today as well in both Houses of Parliament. BSP, which gives outside support to the UPA government, had also moved the same motions on price rise in both Houses today.

Asked if BJP-led NDA would support the Left parties even if the latter agree to a debate on price rise without voting (under Rule 193), Deputy Leader of BJP in Rajya Sabha S S Ahluwalia said, "The Left parties will move the motion on price rise. If they concede and agree for a debate without voting we have no objection."

The BJP expects similar support from the Left on the issue of Black money, an issue the party wants to rake up further after its leader L K Advani undertook a 38-day yatra across the country to highlight it.

"We are standing in support with the Left so that there is no breach in opposition unity," Ahluwalia said.
