Amid the much-awaited presidential election, Monsoon session of Parliament begins on Monday. "But we have to understand that there are laws governing cow protection and breaking it is not an alternative", he said in a series of tweets after the all-party meeting.

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

The all-party meeting was called by the ruling-government to seek the Opposition's support for the smooth conduct of proceedings in both the Houses. On the same day, 776 members of the Parliament are scheduled to cast their vote to elect the country's next President.

The Chairman later adjourned the house till 11 a.m. on Tuesday. "But we have to understand that there are laws governing cow protection and breaking these is not an alternative".

At the meeting, sources said, Naresh Agrawal of the Samajwadi Party suggested that the Opposition parties should have such interactions at least once a month to coordinate their positions.

Azad on Sunday said the government "closed all doors for dialogue" on it which led to "political suffocation" in the Valley. "He would have never approved of cow vigilantism".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during the all-party meet, said advancing the Budget by a month helped increase overall expenditure by almost 30%, with a 48% rise in spending on infrastructure development. The Congress said it stands with the government on matters of territorial integrity and national security.

The Congress leader said the Opposition is likely to raise the issue of farmer suicides in Madhya Pradesh, GST's impact on the textile industry and the floods in Assam.

He told the all-party meeting that 30 per cent of total expenditure and 49 per cent of spending in the infrastructure sector had already taken place before the monsoon started due to the advancement of the budget.

The increased opposition synergy comes at a time when 18 parties have come together under one platform to pin the government on some key issues.

The opposition has vowed to raise the issue in Parliament, seeking answers from the government on what it was doing to end the violence that has claimed many lives - mostly Muslims and Dalits - in the country.
