The day also marks the beginning of the Monsoon session, which is expected to be stormy as the opposition is likely to raise issues like the lynching, terrorist attacks in Amarnath, riots in West Bengal, the impact of GST, the military stand-off with China, farmers suicide and much more.

Modi said some political parties were painting cow protection with communal colour and taking political advantages which does not benefit the country.

He said the stand-off with China will also be raised in Parliament.

"This monsoon session is very important in many ways as the country will elect its new President", Modi said after arriving at Parliament to cast his vote in the presidential poll.

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

They included former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav, Leader of Congress in the House Mallikarjun Kharge, and Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker M Thambidurai, apart from Sonia Gandhi. "All governments should take stringent action against those violating law in the name of cow protection".

Kumar said that Parliament will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Quit India and added that the prime minister has sought healthy discussion over the historical significance of the event.


He told the all-party meeting that 30 per cent of total expenditure and 49 per cent of spending in the infrastructure sector had already taken place before the monsoon started due to the advancement of the budget.

"We have also asked the ruling party to keep the doors of talks open in the matter of Kashmir, if not it will lead to political suffocation".

On August 6, 2016, too, he had spoken out against cow vigilantes, labelling them "anti-social".

The opposition parties are set to contest the government over increasing incidents of lynching and deteriorating internal security situation, especially in Jammu and Kashmir, besides economic issues and farm distress in the ensuring weeks.

The increased opposition synergy comes at a time when 18 parties have come together under one platform to pin the government on some key issues. We will hold discussions on external as well as internal dimensions.

In the 545-member Lok Sabha, the Congress has 45 members while the TMC has 34.
