Leaders of the NDA government will meet in the evening to chalk out their strategy to counter the Opposition in Parliament.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Sunday held an informal meeting of the Opposition leaders to firm up the issues to be raised during the session. The members also mourn the death of Amarnath terror attack victims.
The Government has convened the meeting at 11 AM while Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has invited the leaders at another meeting at 7 PM.
Post GST implementation, monsoon session will have many more agendas to achieve by resolving various issues along with bills passage.
Congress strategists say the government has still to answer why its ties with the neighbours have slumped when the Prime Minister was so focused on foreign policy.
The Opposition was informed about the situation on the ground in Doklam and what the government meant to do to de-escalate the tension in the disputed area.
The government has closed all doors for dialogue on Kashmir "which has led to political suffocation in the Valley", senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said.
The session, he said, is significant due many reasons. So far 18 parties have come together under one platform to pin the government on some key issues.
The issue could also see a division in the opposition ranks as the Left and the JD (U) are unlikely to rush to defend the TMC and the RJD respectively on the matter of corruption.
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". On its first day of the monsoon session, National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah and Indian Union Muslim League leader P K Kunhalikutty took oath as members of Lok Sabha. He said the political class should join hands against those who seek an escape route by dubbing action against them in graft cases as a political conspiracy.
