Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said at an all-party meeting that the Centre should move ahead with the controversial land bill. The meeting was called by the Centre one day before the Monsoon Session to ensure smooth functioning of the Parliament.
The opposition parties are planning to corner the Modi government over ‘Lalitgate’ and the Vyapam scam issue. The ruling BJP, on the other hand, is planning to pass some important bills including the Goods and Services Tax or GST Bill during the Monsoon Session.
An all-party meet chaired by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan will also be held later on Monday.
On Sunday, BJP president Amit Shah had met senior party leaders, including Union minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, who are being asked to resign by the opposition over links with disgraced former IPL chief Lalit Modi.
Meanwhile, despite the opposition raising its voice for resignation of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and some union ministers over the deadly Vyapam scam, BJP has made it clear that it will not cede to any of these demands.
The BJP, instead is planning to launch its own attack highlighting the ‘history of scams’ that have taken place under the watch of Congress during the previous UPA rule.
