New Delhi: The Congress on Thursday night issued a three-line whip to all its MPs in the Rajya Sabha asking them to be present in the House at 11 am on Friday in full strength and support the party's stand.

According to sources, the whip has been issued by the opposition party which seeks to corner the government on some burning issues.

The party has been raising the issues of PNB scam, the Supreme Court's order on SC/ST Act issue and the death of 39 Indians in Iraq.

Some party MPs have also given a notice for moving a privilege motion against External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for allegedly "misleading" the House on the death of the Indians.

Sources said the party MPs in Rajya Sabha are also likely to meet on Friday morning.
