As monsoon session of Parliament begins, PM Modi hopes for good decisions
New Delhi, Jul 21 (IBNS) As the monsoon session of parliament begins on Tuesday holding strong possibilities of a storm to be kicked up by a united opposition, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hoped to see “good decisions” being made by lawmakers.

“Yesterday (Monday), the all-party meet was fruitful...we want all of us to work together," Modi said against the backdrop of opposition parties gearing up to attack the ruling BJP over the allegation of  its senior leaders linked to scams.

“We hope good decisions will be made in this session,” he said.

Modi also said he is hopeful of a productive monsoon session since some political parties, during the last session, had assured the government of the smooth functioning of the House.

During an all-party meet, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday tried to reach out to a belligerent opposition as he said that it is the responsibility of every leader to run the House, reports said.

"The government has to take initiative and responsibility to run Parliament, but this responsibility has to be shared by all. Parliament has a major significance and it should be utilised to discuss all issues. The government is ready to discuss all issues," Modi told leaders of all parties.

The all-party meet was convened by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu.

Modi's appeal to the opposition comes amid a raging controversy over the Lalit Modi issue that has sucked into the vortex two BJP heavyweights- External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.

The Congress has been demanding resignation of both of them for helping out a "fugitive", as the party calls the former Indian Premier League boss, who has been accused of indulging in scams during his term.
The BJP and the Centre are also on the defensive in the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh that has left on its trail many mysterious deaths putting Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan under a scathing criticism.

The Modi government is also anxious about getting safe passage for many key bills.

Even though it is very unlikely that Parliament will take up Land Bill as the Joint Parliamentary Panel is yet to submit its report, Modi said, "We should move forward on Land Bill."
