On his expectations regarding Monsoon session of Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that he “had spoken to all political parties and there is a general mood among them to take good decisions” in the session.

“I have faith in all political parties. Have spoken to them and it is clear that everyone is in a mood to take good decisions,” said the Prime Minister, few minutes ahead of the beginning of Monsoon session of Parliament.

This session is taking place ahead of the 70th Independence Day Celebrations, Modi said. “In this session, we wish to take the journey of these 70 years to greater heights, a new direction, and momentum by indulging in the best of discussions and take excellent decisions for the larger interest of the nation.”

Modi added, “For the nation to move ahead with great speed, we need to walk shoulder-to-shoulder in Parliament to give a direction to the nation”.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday reached out to the Opposition on the eve of Monsoon Session of Parliament to seek its cooperation over the long-pending GST Bill observing that the issue was not about which government would get the “credit” even as the Congress offered no assurance, saying it would support Bills based on “merit”.
