Party leaders also indicated that an adjournment motion on the Uttarkhand issue would be brought in the Lok Sabha today and plans are also afoot to embarass the government in the Rajya Sabha on the matter.

"When the Government has to be held to account and to be exposed, that is the duty of the Opposition. Parliament has every right to discuss the Uttarakhand development. Let us not forget that Article 356 has been abused, the authority of the Government has been abused to topple the popularly-elected Government," party's deputy leader in the Rajya Sabha Anand Sharma told reporters here.

He was dismissing BJP's assertion that the Uttarkhand issue cannot be raised in Parliament as it was subjudice. "I can only sympathize with the BJP leaders and Ministers who have said it, for their bankruptcy on this matter", he said.

Taking a dig at the ruling party, another party leader Kapil Sibal remarked Babri Masjid is a matter which is subjudice for the last 26 years. "How many times, has it been raised in Parliament by the BJP? So when it comes to Babri Masjid, it is not subjudice, when it comes to Uttarakhand, it is subjudice," he added.
