New Delhi: NDA on Tuesday said it will move an adjournment motion in Lok Sabha and suspension of Question Hour in the Rajya Sabha to discuss the ethnic violence in Kokrajhar, Assam.

"NDA has decided that we will not let Parliament function tomorrow unless the issue of ethnic violence in Assam is taken up for discussion," BJP President Nitin Gadkari said at a programme here.

BJP Parliamentary Party Chief LK Advani will move an adjournment motion in the Lok Sabha tomorrow during Question Hour to press for a discussion on this issue. In the Rajya Sabha, Deputy Leader of BJP Ravi Shankar Prasad and his party colleague Balbir Punj will move a suspension of Question Hour notice on the same issue.

BJP had declared in the all-party meeting called by Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar yesterday that it wants a discussion on this issue on the first day of the session. In case the chair rejects the NDA demand, they are likely to disrupt proceedings tomorrow, sources said.
