Maken, in a suo motu statement on the CWG, had put the blame on the BJP-led opposition for appointment of Suresh Kalmadi as CWG Organising Committee chief.The decision to move the notices was taken by NDA leaders at a meeting chaired by senior BJP leader L K Advani.

The NDA decided in case their notice was rejected, they would not allow the two Houses to function. The NDA is seeking a debate on the matter, after suspension of question hour.
