The Prime Minister said that the Centre is ready to discuss all the issues that all the parties will raise in Parliament.

"I hope the Monsoon Session is a productive one and the time is properly utilised to discuss important matters. May the productivity of the forthcoming session and the rich levels of debate also become a source of inspiration for the various state assemblies. Any member, any party can raise any issue, we are all ready for proper discussions," Prime Minister Modi told media here.

The monsoon session, which concludes on August 10, will have 18 sittings amid much-expected drama in both the houses - Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha. Last night, an all-party meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was held to ensure smoothing functioning of the Monsoon session. The meeting received "positive" outcome, according to Union Minister Ananth Kumar.

However, the Opposition parties, led by Congress, are hopefully looking forward to target the in-power Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over various issues. Government has listed a substantive legislative business for the session. This includes 48 items including 46 Bills and two financial matters. On priority, are The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill or the anti-instant triple talaq bill and The Constitution (123rd Amendment) Bill, that gives Constitutional status to the National Commission for Backward Classes.

The National Medical Commission Bill, The Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, The Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, The Consumer Protection Bill, The Dam Safety Bill and Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection and Rehabilitation) Bill are also on Centre's agenda. (ANI)
