BJP issues whip to its Rajya Sabha MPs


NEW DELHI: With a united opposition looking to corner the Government in Rajya Sabha on demonetisation issue, BJP today issued a whip to its members, asking them to be present in the House for three days starting Monday.

The ruling NDA lacks a majority in the Rajya Sabha and BJP believes that a maximum presence of its members would be required in case of any voting.

Sharp clashes have been witnessed in Rajya Sabha in the last two days after Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad made certain comments linking Uri terror attack casualties to the deaths during demonetisation crisis.

Following Azad's remarks senior Government ministers launched a sharp attack on the Congress leader with Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar calling it an insult to martyrs and M Venkaiah Naidu described it as “anti-”, and demanding an apology.

On other side, opposition wants that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should be present in the House, during the discussion on the demonetisation issue.

“The party has issue whip for three days November 21 to November 23 asking all its MPs in Rajya Sabha to be present in the House,” a source said.
