‘Growing together stronger’ is another name for GST spirit: PM Modi ahead of Monsoon session

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday hoped that the successful ‘rains’ of GST will fill the Monsoon session with pleasant smell like that emanating from dry soil after showers.


Addressing to media ahead of the session, PM Modi said, “Growing together stronger is another name of the GST spirit.”

“I hope all political parties, MPs will work for national interest and will engage in high standard of debate and provide value addition,” Modi added.

The issues of cow vigilantism, farmers’ protests, Kashmir unrest, action of law enforcement agencies against some opposition leaders over alleged corruption and India’s stand-off with China are likely to dominate the Monsoon Session.

The Congress and several other opposition parties, including the Left, have been critical of the ruling alliance over the cases of violence by self-proclaimed cow protectors who have often attacked Muslims and, in some cases, Dalits.

Economic issues, especially alleged lack of jobs, are also likely to be taken up by the opposition parties to corner the government.
