New Delhi, Oct.16 (ANI): The Bhartiya Janata Partyw will train its guns on the UPA Government, raising issues like terrorism, the financial crisis, internal security and increase in inflation during the Parliament session which begins from Friday.
Party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said the BJP would also highlight discrepancies in the loan waiver scheme and the recent incidents of violence in Assam.
Replying to a question, Javedkar said that the Central Government should reduce oil prices, as international prices had come down heavily in the last few days.
