Govt calls all-party meeting ahead of Parliament Session

No bouquet to be presented to PM Narendra Modi during his tours within country MHA to states

The dastardly Amarnath terror attack was strongly condemned by the Lok Sabha MPs.

At the all party meeting, the government is likely to seek opposition's support for smooth functioning of the upcoming Parliament Session.

Meanwhile, the polling for the President election is underway at the Parliament and the various state Assemblies. JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav has accused the Modi government of failing to fulfil its promises to create jobs and said the opposition parties would raise the matter in Parliament. He said, GST shows the good that can be achieved when all parties come together and work for the nation.

Targeting the government on the Kashmir issue, he said the government "closed all doors for dialogue" on it which led to "political suffocation" in the Valley.

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. At least 16 new bills are listed for introduction in this session including to implement the GST in Jammu and Kashmir, and a bill to amend the Citizenship Act to allow certain illegal immigrants get Indian citizenship.

"We will also raise the issues related to mob lynching, agrarian crisis in view of farmer suicides".

To counter the opposition's onslaught, the government is also gearing up.

Sources in the BJP said that the government will try to pass a dozen Bills during the session, including the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, Whistle blowers' Protection Bill, Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, Enemy Property (Amendment) Bill Consumer Protection Bill, and the Companies (Amendment) Bill.

Both houses of Parliament are unlikely to transact any business on the first day on account of the death of members - Vinod Khanna (Lok Sabha) and Anil Dave and P Goverdhan Reddy (Rajya Sabha).
