New Delhi, Aug 4, 2017: Opposition parties are likely to move two privilege motions in the Rajya Sabha on Friday.
One against External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for allegedly misinforming the House on India’s foreign policy and the second privilege is for allegedly “misinforming the House on Modi’s 2015 Lahore visit, claiming that there was no terror incident after that”.
On Thursday, Sushma Swaraj participated in debate on foreign policy and the India-China border stand-off. She slammed the Opposition for alleging that the foreign policy was faulty and vehemently rejected the charge that India was standing isolated at the world stage.
