New Delhi: The all-party meeting convened by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan ahead of the Monsoon Session of the Parliament has begun.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also present in the all-party meeting along with his senior Cabinet colleagues.
On Sunday, top Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders met at the Prime Minister¿s official 7, Race Course Road (RCR) residence here to discuss the party¿s strategy ahead of the Monsoon Session of the Parliament.
Union Ministers Sushma Swaraj and Venkaiah Naidu, and BJP president Amit Shah were among those who participated in the meeting.
The party leadership reportedly discussed the strategy for the session as opposition parties have closed their ranks against the government on various issues, including Vyapam scam, Lalit Modi controversy and the Socio Economic and Caste Census.
While the BJP-led NDA commands a sizeable majority in the Lok Sabha, it lacks numbers in the Rajya Sabha where opposition holds the key to passage of important legislations, including Goods and Services Tax and Land bill.
