The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday said it is ready to answer any doubts and queries raised by the Opposition in the Parliament's Monsoon Session. "Also condition of farmers and gau rakshak incidents, China".

Terming the start of the session today as very significant, Modi noted that this session gets an opportunity to elect a new president and a vice-president for the country, which will also complete seven decades of its Independence on August 15.

Parliament Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar also has convened an all-party meeting to seek their support for smooth functioning of Parliament.

After the CBI raids on RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and his son Tejaswi Yadav, several political parties including the Congress have said the action was meant to break the opposition unity against the Modi government. "But committing crimes in the name of cow protection out of personal animosities can not be tolerated".

At the meeting, sources said, Naresh Agrawal of the Samajwadi Party suggested that the Opposition parties should have such interactions at least once a month to coordinate their positions.

"They (cow vigilantes) must be vigorously opposed and action taken to restore faith of all Indians in our Constitution", he said.

This 12 Megapixel camera powered phone will be fuelled by a 3,300 mAh battery and is the most awaited phone. This was due to issues with its battery which caused it to burst into flames and made it unsafe to use.

Seeking the support of the opposition parties in tackling "communal violence" in the name of cow protection, Modi also warned against giving a political or communal colour to the issue.

Azad on Sunday said the government "closed all doors for dialogue" on it which led to "political suffocation" in the Valley.

Meanwhile, Leaders of the NDA government will meet in the evening to chalk out their strategy to counter the Opposition in Parliament.

Issues like the flood situation particularly in Assam and other northeastern states, violence over Gorkhaland, fallout of demonetisation, job losses and disinvestment of PSUs are also likely to be raised.

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.

"We must not let India be held hostage to those who wish to impose upon it a narrow-minded, divisive and communal vision". Ghulam Nabi Azad, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha was quoted by ANI saying, "Will discuss security issues especially Kashmir".
