NEW DELHI: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi on Tuesday gave a notice in the Lok Sabha on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) row and the Ishran Jahan case.

With the notice being submitted, these issues are most likely to be raised in the Parliament during the Budget Session which begins from today.

Asserting that the government was ready to discuss the current state of unrest at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Union parliamentary affairs minister M. Venkaiah Naidu earlier said that there were different views on the issue which needs to be addressed and debated.

"It's a big country and yes there are several issues. That's what the Parliament is there for, to discuss those issues. Government has no hesitation in discussing JNU or Hyderabad University or any other issues. There are different views on it which needs to be debated," Naidu told the media here after chairing an all-party meeting.

Calling on the Opposition to adopt a positive approach for the upcoming Budget Session, he added that holding ‘discussion’ should be the protocol in the Parliament instead of ‘disruption’.
