Upcoming monsoon session of Parliament to be "stormy": BJP

BJP on Friday said the upcoming Monsoon Session of the Parliament would be made a "stormy" one and that it would coordinate with other opposition parties to "corner" the government on fuel price hike and price rise.



Chennai: BJP on Friday said the upcoming Monsoon Session of the Parliament would be made a "stormy" one and that it would coordinate with other opposition parties to "corner" the government on fuel price hike and price rise.

Senior BJP leader M Venkiah Naidu told reporters here that the July five nation-wide strike called by his party was aimed at "opening the eyes" of the government to the
sufferings of people.

"We will also confront the government in the Parliament during the monsoon session. We will corner the government and coordinate with other opposition parties (for this purpose).

It will be a stormy session," he said.

Instead of "redrawing its taxation policy" on petroleum products, the Centre is just passing the burden on common man and the hike in fuel prices will have a cascading effect on prices of essential commodities, Naidu added.

The Congress-led UPA has "failed on every front," including checking the Maoist menace, he alleged.

Asked about BJP`s ties with JD(U) in Bihar, he said the combine had been giving good governance and "we will fight elections together."

"No conditions have been put to us by JD(U) leaders as reported in a section of media," he said.

Ties between the two parties had strained recently when JD(U) leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar took exception to an advertisement showing him joining hands with his Gujarat counterpart Narendra Modi.
