All parties have given assurance of a peaceful Monsoon Session: Sumitra Mahajan

Reportedly, after the all-party meet, the Leaders of the NDA government will meet in the evening to chalk out their strategy to counter the Opposition in Parliament.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, while making the obituary references, also condemned the terrorist attack on Amarnath pilgrims and described it as a "cowardly" act.

"I want this Parliament session to be fruitful". Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said the Opposition "will seek answers from the government on what they are doing to check rising incidents of cow vigilantism and lynchings in the country that pose grave danger to the social harmony". Similarly, this Monsoon session will bring in a new spirit after the successful implementation of GST.

The Monsoon session of Parliament for 2017 is all set to begin on Monday, July 17, and the Opposition parties have a number of issues in their kitty that they plan to raise in order to corner the BJP-led NDA government in general and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in particular.

The Opposition is likely to raise the issue of China, Jammu and Kashmir and Darjeeling unrest, impact of Goods and Service Tax (GST) and other issues.

The Prime Minister also mentioned that the highest level of dignity has been maintained in the whole process of Presidential Election till now and no situation of any bitterness surfaced among the political parties.

Ghulam Nabi Azad, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, said the situation on the border with China in the Sikkim sector is very tense even as he blamed Beijing for the boundary stand-off. Now, in a meeting before the beginning of the Monsoon session, Modi has promised strict action against such cow vigilantes. The members of the upper house remembered parliamentarians, including sitting members Anil Madhav Dave of the BJP and Palvai Govardhan Reddy of the Congress, who passed away in the past few months.
