Slamming the Delhi government as well as the Centre for failing to bring down the crime graph in the national capital, BJP on Tuesday said it would raise the issue of the gangrape of a girl in Parliament and move suspension of Question Hour notices in both the Houses.
"This is a serious issue...it is happening frequently. We will raise the issue with full force in Parliament," Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said.
Party chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said the decision was taken at the Parliamentary Board meeting held in the morning.
"Several of our members have moved notice to suspend Question Hour (in both Houses)...they were deeply agitated," he told reporters.
He said women MPs from NDA constituents will stage a dharna inside Parliament House complex tomorrow morning to flag the issue of "Delhi becoming a centre of atrocities on women...there is no palpable action by the police".
Prasad said BJP will also raise the "serious issue" of a Constitutional Amendment Bill in Lok Sabha today giving special status to Hyderabad-Karnataka region (in Karnataka). He, however, did not elaborate.
