Cong top brass meet to chalk out strategy for Monsoon session

Monsoon session of Parliament begins today: Five issues that Opposition will raise to target govt

He said he hoped that spirit would also mark the monsoon session that began today and that all parliamentarians would engage in quality debate.

The monsoon session of Parliament beginning from Monday is expected to be stormy with the Opposition parties all set to corner the government over a range of issues concerning national security, foreign policy and other domestic matters, while the ruling alliance is gearing up to counter the onslaught on it. This is ikely to be his last session in the parliament. The two Houses will be adjourning on the opening day because of the death of the sitting members since last session. All political parties have assured me that they will help in conducting a peaceful parliament session.

He also said opposition parties will seek a discussion on the India-China standoff in the Dokalam area near the Bhutan trijunction.

The polling starts at 10 with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah casting their vote.

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. On Kashmir, the Opposition feels the government has mishandled both the internal situation and the engagement with Pakistan.

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.

He said former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram had already said that the GST roll-out will be raised during the session in view of the fact that the law in its present form was not the law that was originally drafted by the Congress party.

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

The Trinamool Congress and the Rashtriya Janata Dal are likely to highlight the alleged targetting of Opposition leaders by central agencies like the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate.
