No voting on Left motion on price rise
New Delhi: The Left parties will move a motion in Lok Sabha on the issue of spiralling prices of essential commodities on Wednesday.
The discussion on the motion will be held under Rule 168, which entails no voting.
The government has accepted moving the motion in the Lok Sabha after leaders of Left parties met Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee.
Earlier in the day CPI(M) politbureau member Sitaram Yechury and senior CPI leader Basudeb Acharia had given an adjournment notice in the Lok Sabha.
The Lok Sabha on Wednesday will also discuss Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee’s claim of inflation coming down to 6-7 per cent by March.
Both Left and the Right parties flayed the finance minister’s claims on inflation.
“The prices are not going to come down and the finance minister`s statement has been made to mislead the country,” said BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain.
"People will not believe in Congress party`s bogus assurances," he added.
Senior CPI leader Gurudas Dasgupta said, “The finance minister`s statement is a piece of paper without any significance and a colossal denial by the government to accept its own failure to control the inflation."
