Parliament Monsoon Session Day 1 To Be Adjourned In Both Houses

Parliament Monsoon Session Day 1 To Be Adjourned In Both Houses

On the issue of Kashmir and tensions with China, Kumar said the government had a meeting with opposition leaders and every party has said they were with the government on matters of national security.

The Monsoon session of Parliament will begin from July 17 and continue till August 11. Available on Android and IOS.

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

Both the meetings will be held in the Parliament Library building.

People involved in corruption should not be saved, he said at the meeting, adding that the image of a political leader has taken a beating because of this. The Labour Code on Wages Bill, 2017 that will look after the minimum wages and The National Sports University Bill, 2017 which will enable the establishment of a National Sports University (NSU) in Manipur are also likely to be discussed in both the Houses.

"Strict action should be taken by the state governments against those who are violating law in the name of cow protection", he reportedly said in his address to an all-party meeting a day before a new session of parliament commences in India.




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. Issues like the flood situation in Assam and other northeastern states, violence over Gorkhaland, fallout of demonetisation and disinvestment of PSUs may also be raised.

However, no one from the JD (U) or the Trinamool Congress were present.

That, coupled with the continued layoffs in the IT sector, will give the Opposition parties quite a bit of ammunition to fire at the Central government. Just like rains make soil emit a pleasant smell, similarly, the successful implementation of the GST has filled the session with a new hope and excitement,"Modi said.

This is impossible, unless the government plans to pass all these bills and grants in the din minus any discussion", he said. "No person or group can be allowed to take the law into their own hands", said Union minister Ananth Kumar quoting the Prime Minister.

Rajya Sabha also adjourned till tomorrow. "For this session, the government has given a list of 16 new Bills, while there are already 10 Bills pending in Rajya Sabha and eight in Lok Sabha".
