Government concedes Opposition’s demand, wants it to agree to a motion that can be passed unanimously
The government on Tuesday conceded the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Opposition's demand for a discussion on price rise with voting, while persuading the Opposition to agree to an “acceptable” motion that could be passed unanimously.

A discussion under Rule 184 will be held in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday on a motion to be moved by the BJP's Yashwant Sinha and Sharad Yadav of the Janata Dal (United). K.S. Rao of the Congress too submitted a similar notice.

The Congress managers worked with the Opposition to craft a text of the motion, through which the House would call upon the government to take immediate and effective steps to check inflation.

This breakthrough should help in the normal functioning of Parliament, which was adjourned for the second consecutive day after noisy scenes in both Houses. Opposition members have been demanding a discussion on price rise, corruption and other issues, including land acquisition, since Monday when the monsoon session began.

BJP leader Arun Jaitley said the government approached his party at lunch-break with a suggestion to end the stalemate, after both Houses were adjourned till 2.00 p.m.
