Indian premier calls for action against cow vigilantism

"If the government thinks that elimination and guns are the only ways to curb tension in Kashmir, we are not with them", he told reporters after an all-party meeting a day before Parliament opens for the monsoon session.

"All political parties should collectively denounce hooliganism in the name of cow protection".

"Farm distress" and the "economic burdens" on the people were also taken up.

The Prime Minister also urged the political leaders to help carry forward the investigation against corrupt politicians.

The Opposition parties that include the Congress, CPI-M, Trinamool Congress, Samajwasdi Party, Nationalist Congress Psarty, BSP, Janata Dal-United, the Rashtriya Janata Dal and DMK among others have already clarified that besides the elections of the President and Vice-President, they will have floor coordination in Parliament to corner the government.

There was a consensus across party lines on ensuring smooth functioning of Parliament without disruptions and deadlocks to be resolved through constructive discussions in both the Houses, the official release said. "However, people must know that there is a law to protect the cow and the violation of law is not an alternative". "He would have never approved of cow vigilantism".

Speaking to the media, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad held the Centre squarely responsible for the "suffocation" of the peace process in Kashmir. "As a responsible and principled Opposition party, we shall be raising all these issues and many more", Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said.

Azad said security situation was at its "worst" in Kashmir where the government has closed all the doors for talks to end the current logjam. The meeting of the parties will deliberate on the issues that are likely to be discussed in the upcoming Monsoon session. "This is impossible, unless the government plans to pass all these bills and grants in the din minus any discussion", he said.

Taking a dig at Lalu Prasad's RJD and Mamata Banerjee's TMC, Modi said the political class should join hands against those seeking an escape route by dubbing action against them in graft cases as 'political conspiracy.' "When law takes its course against those who loot the nation, we have to unite".
