Parliament Monsoon Session Day 1 To Be Adjourned In Both Houses

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday said that a number of important issues would be discussed with the Opposition at the all-party meeting convened by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Government ahead of the Monsoon Session of the Parliament and Presidential polls, citing the Centre is ready to any issue that the House raises.

CPM General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said this was probably the shortest monsoon session in India's Parliamentary history.

BJP leaders have said they would take on the opposition over these issues claiming that the government's track record has been better than the UPA in terms of economy and agriculture growth. "State governments should take stern action such anti-social elements".

On July 14 and July 15, the government briefed leaders of Opposition parties about the month-old stand-off with China and the situation in Kashmir in the aftermath of the killing of the seven Amarnath pilgrims.

The Prime Minister also called on all the party to support the war against corruption, which has been initiated by the government.

Seeking to build a firewall for the government from the expected opposition attacks in Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today made it clear that states should act tough against those violating law in the name of cow protection and insisted that the issue should not be given political and communal colour.

On Sunday the Speaker held an all-party meet to iron out differences between government and opposition parties.

Spread over 26 days, the session will have 19 sittings and the government has lined up heavy legislative agenda.

The Opposition was informed about the situation on the ground in Doklam and what the government meant to do to de-escalate the tension in the disputed area.

"If the government thinks that elimination and guns are the only ways to curb tension in Kashmir, we are not with them", he told reporters after an all-party meeting a day before Parliament opens for the monsoon session.

Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan has also called an all party meeting at 7pm at the Parliament library building.

The Opposition is expected to raise the issue of Jammu and Kashmir in both the Houses, including the implementation of Goods and Service Tax (GST) and the ongoing clashes in West Bengal.
