Kumar said that Prime minister Modi said that the government has started a campaign against corruption and urged all political parties to join it.

He added: "This is affecting the image of the country as well. He would have never approved of cow vigilantism". Also, the Parliament session saw a great deal of dignity given to all the members and no such chaos was said to have occurred that day, which is again on a plus scenario for a better sophistication that is getting established in Indian Politics, quite gradually. "It (cow vigilantism) should not be given political or communal colour; the nation doesn't benefit from it".

Mr. Modi had last spoken against cow vigilantism on June 30 at the Sabarmati Ashram, calling violence in the name of "gau bhakti" antithetical to Mahatma Gandhi's views. It is widely believed that the Prime Minister has come on the forefront after sensing the mood of the Opposition parties.

The meeting came hours before the customary pre-session all-party meet called by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan late in the evening.

India's Supreme Court on July 11 overturned a government decree on the trade of cattle for slaughter, an order that threatened the country's multi-billion dollar meat and leather industry dominated by Muslims.

The issue has raised concerns as the targets of such violence have been minority members and Dalits.

"When law takes its course against those who loot the nation, we have to unite against those who seek an escape route by dubbing such an action as a political conspiracy", the Prime Minister tweeted. He also called upon all political parties to ensure that everyone votes and no vote is wasted.

In his speech, Modi also referred to the presidential poll and said it would have been better had there been a consensus on the candidate.

Union Minister Ananth Kumar, after the all-party meet, also iterated PM Modi's statements and said those committing violence will face severe prosecution.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told reporters after the meeting that Modi also noted that the 75th anniversary of the Quit India Movement falls on August 9 and all parties should celebrate it. "The prime minister also sought the co-operation of all parties for the successful implementation of GST", Kumar was quoted as saying by a report. The Trinamool Congress did not attend the meeting.

Earlier, talking to media, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said his party has demanded the discussion on Kashmir issue and continued standoff with China over Doklam matter in Parliament.
