Updates on the Presidential Elections and Monsoon Session

"Those engaged in disturbing the harmony in the country are trying to take advantage of the situation", Modi said at an all-party meeting ahead of Parliament's monsoon session that begins on Monday.

"All political parties should collectively denounce hooliganism in the name of cow protection". He also observed that the differences with China over Kashmir had become a new focal point.

The monsoon session ends on August 11.

The Prime Minister also urged the political leaders to help carry forward the investigation against corrupt politicians. On the same day, 776 members of the Parliament are scheduled to cast their vote to elect the country's next President. While the BJP parliamentary party executive committee will meet at 3pm at the Parliament library building, senior leaders of the Congress will be holding their own meeting at party leader Sonia Gandhi's residence. "All governments should take stringent action against those violating law in the name of cow protection". He said opposition parties will seek a discussion on the India-China standoff in Dokalam.

"It is the responsibility of all political parties to take action against such tainted leaders".

According to PRS Legislative Research, a total of 18 bills have been listed for passage in the Parliament. We will hold discussions on external as well as internal dimensions.

Taking a dig at Lalu Prasad's RJD and Mamata Banerjee's TMC, Modi said the political class should join hands against those seeking an escape route by dubbing action against them in graft cases as 'political conspiracy.'
