The Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day after obituary references soon after the monsoon session of Parliament began on Monday.

"Cow vigilantism should not be given political or communal colour as the nation doesn't benefit from it", Kumar quoted Modi as saying in the all-party meeting.

He said the stand-off with China will also be raised in Parliament.

The Monsoon Session of Parliament is to be held from July 17, 2017 to August 11, 2017.

The PM also urged all parties to extend support to his government's fight against corruption. The PM asked all parties to collectively fight hooliganism by cow vigilantes and said all State governments should take stringent action against anti-social elements perpetrating violence.

Azad, after attending the all-party meeting called by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) here, said that China is a matter of national security and hence, it should be discussed in both Houses of the parliament. "However, people must know that there is a law to protect the cow and the violation of law is not an alternative".

Azad on Sunday said the government "closed all doors for dialogue" on it which led to "political suffocation" in the Valley. "It is the responsibility of all political parties to take action against such tainted leaders".

He said the CPI-M will also raise the issues of Kashmir situation, border tensions with China as well as Pakistan, and agrarian crisis.

Issues like the flood situation particularly in Assam and other northeastern states, violence over Gorkhaland, fallout of demonetisation, job losses and disinvestment of PSUs are also likely to be raised.

He wanted parties to unite against those people who cried political vendetta when the law was taking its own course.
