Indian premier calls for action against cow vigilantism

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.

Addressing a meeting of Opposition leaders on Sunday, Congress president Sonia Gandhi said the numbers may be against their candidates for the President and Vice-President's post, the "battle must be fought" to protect the highest Constitutional offices in the country.

The leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha said that earlier "Pakistan would figure in discussions on Kashmir, but now China is mentioned without fail".

Twenty-four of the 28 people killed in the attacks were Muslims. At a meeting of the NDA MPs which was also attended by Kovind, Modi recalled that the former Bihar governor had worked as a "sahyogi" (aide) of Morarji Desai when he was the prime minister and said this government will offer all "sahyog" (cooperation) to him.

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. "Everyone should come together and put an end to it", he said. However, on the issues of corruption and the raids on the leaders of Opposition parties, the fracture among the Opposition parties may appear.

Apparently indicating the recent cases against TMC leaders and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad, the Prime Minister those involved in corruption should not be saved, adding that the image of a political leader has taken a beating because of this.

In an address ahead of the monsoon session, PM Modi asked the members of the house to keep national interest in mind during the session. BJP party President Amit Shah also arrives at 10:00. "The state governments must also see to it that in the name of cow protection some people are settling personal rivalry".

The meeting began at 11 a.m., with leaders from political parties and Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley, Ananth Kumar, among others, being present. "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".
