New Delhi, Dec 5: The NDA leaders will meet here tomorrow to consider its future course of action on the issue that the Opposition was not getting a ''fair deal'' in the the House proceedings on the matter concerning Singur land acquisition in West Bengal.
The decision to hold the a meeting was taken at the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting where several senior leaders, including Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha L K Advani expressed their anguish about the way they were denied permission to raise the issue of arrest of BJP President Rajnath Singh at West Bengal.
Mr Advani told the MPs that he had discussions with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on the issue and told them that it was the right of the Opposition to raise the issue of misuse of state machinery, denying the farmers their due compensation.
Asked if this would mean in Opposition having no-confidence in the Speaker, Mr Malhotra said he could not say anything, except to state that the Opposition did not get justice in the House.
He said several farmers had complained to Mr Rajnath Singh when he was in Singur to join the protests organised by Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee.
The Party had asked Party leader M Venkiah Naidu to provide the party panel's report in a couple of days to the party on the Special Economic Zone. The party was to get this report during Lucknow National Executive in the normal course.
