New Delhi: The BJP appeared all set to raise a storm in the Rajya Sabha on the Lokpal Bill with Leader of Opposition demanding suspension of Question Hour on Tuesday so that the House resumes functioning by taking up the anti-graft legislation, stalled in the last session.

Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley will give a notice on Tuesday for suspension of Question Hour as the party is in no mood to give up the contentious Lokpal issue which had led to adjournment of the Upper House on the night of December 29 without passing the Bill.

"The reason government gave then is that it wants more time to go through those amendments moved by the members. By now, it has had enough time to study them," Jaitley said on Monday, adding that his party will demand that the Lokpal Bill debate be the first business that the Upper House takes up in the Budget session.

The BJP leader insisted that the opposition wants an "adequate reply" from the government on this issue in the Parliament.

"Nothing on the Lokpal debate was inconclusive," he said and maintained that logically the Bill, which has already been passed by the Lok Sabha, should be passed in the Rajya Sabha.

Minister of State in PMO V Narayansamy had begun his reply to the debate when the House was adjourned by Chairman Hamid Ansari on the grounds that there was no order in the House.

Deputy leader of BJP in Rajya Sabha S S Ahluwalia indicated that smooth conduct of the House on Tuesday and in the subsequent days may not be possible if the government does not relent to this demand.
