New Delhi: With the Winter Session of
Parliament less than a week away, BJP on Wednesday gave notices to
the Lok Sabha Speaker for discussion on the politically-
sensitive issues of price rise, black money and the demand for
formation of Telangana state.

Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj has
given notices for discussion on these two issues, along with
two Calling Attention motions during the forthcoming
Parliament session commencing on November 22.

"The Winter Session of Parliament begins on 22nd
November. I have given notices for discussion on price rise
and Telangana," Swaraj said on Twitter.

She said, "My party colleagues in Lok Sabha are
submitting notices on corruption, black money, blockade in
Manipur, flood, encephalitis, Centre-state relations, Kashmir,
Indo-Pak relations and other important issues".

With BJP leader L K Advani`s yatra focusing on the issue
of corruption and black money, the party wants to take up the
issue in a big way in Parliament.

The main opposition has already indicated that it would
demand a separate discussion on the state of the economy,
Indo-Pak relations in the wake of developments at the SAARC
Summit in Maldives and the situation in Kashmir especially
after the recent controversy over AFSPA.

The 2G spectrum issue will also be raised by the Left and
the BJP. The latter has been demanding the sacking of Home
Minister P Chidambaram, who was Finance Minister when the
licenses were given.

"I am also giving notices for calling attention on the
issues of excessive flouride in ground water in many parts of
the country and on non-procurement of paddy in Maharashtra
particularly in Gondia-Bhandara districts," Swaraj said.

The first few days of the Winter Session are likely to
see BJP-led NDA and the Left parties forcing adjournments of
the two Houses as the government may not relent on suspension
of Question Hour and discussion on some of these issues.
