New Delhi: BJP-led NDA will move an
Adjournment Motion in Lok Sabha, demand suspension of
Question Hour in Rajya Sabha on February 23 in protest against
price rise and ask Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and External
Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee to come clear on the talks
with Pakistan.

The Budget session of Parliament will commence on
February 22 with the Presidential Address.

"On February 23, NDA will bring an Adjournment Motion in
the Lok Sabha and demand suspension of the Question Hour in
the Rajya Sabha on the issue of price rise," Deputy Leader of
BJP in the Upper House, S S Ahluwalia said.

BJP will also seek a clarification from the government
on its unilateral initiative for Foreign Secretary-level talks
with Pakistan.

"BJP feels the UPA government is deviating from India`s
policy on Jammu and Kashmir. In 1994, a resolution was passed
in Parliament that Jammu and Kashmir was an integral part of
India. The Prime Minister and Minister for External Affairs
should clarify in Parliament that they will abide by the 1994
resolution," Ahluwalia said.

Other issues to be raised by NDA during the Budget
session of Parliament include the Naxal menace, the Ranganath
Committee report recommending reservation for Muslims, the
issue of autonomy to Jammu and Kashmir as suggested by the
Saghir Ahmed Committee report and the Pune blast.
