NEW DELHI : The Opposition parties will most likely move two privilege motions opposite to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in Rajya Sabha on Friday for allegation misinforming the House on India's foreign policy.

 According to sources, leaders of different political parties will move two privilege motions against Swaraj for allegedly "providing wrong information on the Bandung Asia Africa relations conference and about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Lahore visit in 2015".

 Sushma Swaraj declared that she had not conveyed any speech in the Bandung conference, the opposition parties have downloaded a purported speech and will attach it as proof.

 External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj also declare that she felt great when she attended the Bandung Conference and saw huge pictures of Nehru at the venue, when Anand Sharma alleged that the first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru's name was missing from the address delivered by Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh at the 60th anniversary of Bandung Conference.

 The second privilege is for supposedly "misinforming the House on Modi's 2015 Lahore visit, claiming that there was no terror incident after that".

 This occurred after Sushma in the Rajya Sabha, said that India has taken attempt to ease the stand-off with China. Sushma swaraj more declared that war cannot solve the problems and that the wisdom is to resolve issues diplomatically on the issue of border stand-off with China.

 This point was lifted in the Rajya Sabha today with Congress leader Anand Sharma and Trinamool leader Derek O Brien saying that Swaraj had delivered her speech at Bandung despite allegations to the contrary.
