The stage is set for a stormy monsoon session of Parliament, beginning Monday, as the Opposition has geared up to corner the Narendra Modi government on a range of issues.

Meanwhile, Leaders of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Government will meet in the evening to chalk out their strategy to counter the Opposition in Parliament. JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav has accused the Modi government of failing to fulfil its promises to create jobs and said the opposition parties would raise the matter in Parliament.

The Prime Minister expressed gratitude towards all parties for supporting the Government in bringing historic economic reforms like preponing of Budget Session of the Parliament and bringing in the Goods and Services Tax (GST). It plans to introduce 16 new bills, push for the passage of 18 pending draft legislation and seek the approval of Parliament for the supplementary demand for grants.

The TMC and RJD are likely to raise the issue of vendetta politics and targetting of the opposition leaders through the Central Bureau of Investigation, Enforcement Directorate and other central agencies. He will also address NDA members of Parliament.
