"Cow is treated as a mother and it is an emotive issue".

As the Monsoon Session of Parliament gets underway, we salute our farmers who have been ensuring food security for the country with their hard work.

The first day of the session will not see much business, because it has been reserved for the Presidential election, the counting for which will take place on July 20.

Targeting the Centre on the Kashmir issue, he said the government "closed all doors for dialogue" which led to "political suffocation" in the Valley. The opposition plans to raise these cases in the coming session of the parliament.

On Sunday, addressing an all-party meeting called by parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar, PM Modi had sent a warning to self-styled cow vigilantes and asked states to take strict action against them. Azad made it clear today that the opposition parties would seek a debate on the stand-off in the Dokalam area near the Bhutan trijunction.

Modi said some political parties were painting cow protection with communal colour and taking political advantages which does not benefit the country.

He alleged that some political parties were portraying cow protection as a communal issue to gain political mileage, which is detrimental to the country's secular fibre.

It is slated to conclude on August 11. Opposition leaders took up the issue of recent attacks on minorities and Dalits. The PM's firstever visit to Israel could also come up for discussion.

RJD has also accused the BJP of trying to drive a wedge in the RJD-JD (U)-Congress grand alliance in Bihar. However, on the issues of corruption and the raids on the leaders of Opposition parties, the fracture among the Opposition parties may appear.

He said the Congress "is not in favour of stalling the proceedings of Parliament, but we are forced to do so when the government does not agree to our genuine demands". "Growing Stronger Together" is the other name of GST spirit said PM Modi urging value addition to this monsoon session. BJP party President Amit Shah also arrives at 10:00.

Opposition parties have slammed the Indian government over cases of cow vigilantism that has hit the Muslim community particularly hard.

Rajya Sabha also adjourned till tomorrow. Apart from this, 16 bills have been listed for introduction and passage in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
