Communal violence over cow protection must be curbed sternly: Modi

"PM Modi has asked states to take strict action against those violating law in the name of cow protection".

The Congress leader said the Opposition is likely to raise the issue of farmer suicides in Madhya Pradesh, GST's impact on the textile industry and the floods in Assam. Also, the Parliament session saw a great deal of dignity given to all the members and no such chaos was said to have occurred that day, which is again on a plus scenario for a better sophistication that is getting established in Indian Politics, quite gradually.

Twenty-four of the 28 people killed in the attacks were Muslims.

The decision was taken by the TMC parliamentary party at a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

The session will be challenging for the NDA government who will have to face the united opposition on host of issues including the Goods and Services Tax (GST), introduced recently.

The issue has raised concerns as the targets of such violence have been minority members and Dalits.

A total of 18 Bills have been listed for passage in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha in the upcoming Monsoon session of Parliament, a research body, PRS Legislative Research said on Saturday.

I hit balls for an hour and a half last night, but then felt stiff and said: 'That's enough.' But at least I know when enough is. He laughed and held his face in his hands, knowing he had dropped into a playoff with his only bogey in a round of 68.

Modi also asked the opposition to support the government in conducting business in both the Houses "without disruption".

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.

The Prime Minister also urged the political leaders to help carry forward the investigation against corrupt politicians. "All parties were in favour of a productive monsoon session".

The government meanwhile has a series of legislations to be passed in Parliament.

The meeting began at 11 a.m., with leaders from political parties and Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley, Ananth Kumar, among others, being present.

Speaking to the media, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad held the Centre squarely responsible for the "suffocation" of the peace process in Kashmir.

Other crucial legislations include the labour code bill, the extension of GST in Jammu and Kashmir bill, the banking resolution bill and 'The Admiralty (Jurisdiction and Settlement of Maritime Claims) Bill, 2017.
