Monsoon session of Parliament begins

If Modi can’t enforce his own thinking or words on the issue of cow vigilantism it shows only him in a poor light

The Monsoon Session of the Parliament, which began from today, will continue till August 11.

The House may not function on the first day of the session on account of death of two sitting MPs-Lok Sabha member Vinod Khanna and Rajya Sabha member Pallavi Reddy.

The stage is set for a stormy monsoon session of Parliament, beginning Monday, as the Opposition has geared up to corner the Narendra Modi government on a range of issues. "I hope the same GST spirit prevails in this session", the he said. "All political parties have urged that they want to hold fruitful discussions on various issues including the issues of the farmers", said Mahajan.

Ahead of the 12th session of 16th Lok Sabha, the National Democratic Alliance Government has called an all-party meeting on Sunday in a bid to seek the Opposition's support for the smooth conduct of proceedings in both the Houses.

Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad made it clear today that the Congress and other opposition parties would target the government over the issues of Kashmir as well as the stand-off with China. On Kashmir, the Opposition feels the government has mishandled both the internal situation and the engagement with Pakistan. It assured them the issue will be resolved diplomatically.

The Trinamool Congress is reportedly attending that meeting. He said, GST shows the good that can be achieved when all parties come together and work for the nation.

CPI-M leader Mohammad Salim said apart from issues concerning tension on the border, his party will raise the issue of mob lynching and the agrarian crisis.

If parties like Mamata Banerjee-led TMC and Lalu Prasad- led RJD attack the government over the action of law enforcement agencies such as the CBI and the ED against their leaders over alleged corruption, the treasury benches too would use the issue to underline their anti-corruption credentials.
