Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he believed the monsoon session of Parliament, which  began today, would provide an opportunity to all political parties and Members of Parliament (MPs) to enter into a dialogue of the highest quality with value addition for taking major decisions in the larger national interest together. 
"Monsoon Session of the Parliament gets underway today. After summer, the advent of first rain brings in a fresh new smell into the soil. Similarly, this Monsoon Session will bring in a new spirit after the successful implementation of GST," he said in a statement to journalists on his arrival at Parliament House.
"Whenever the political parties and the Government take decisions keeping in mind the national interest, it shows their commitment towards the larger public good. It has been proved successfully with the implementation of GST. The GST spirit is about 'growing stronger together'. I hope the same GST spirit prevails in this session," he said.
Mr. Modi said the monsoon session was significant on several accounts. The nation will complete 70 years of independence on August 15 and August 9 will mark the 75th anniversary of the Quit India movement. Also, a new President and a new Vice-President will be elected during the session.
"In a way, this period is full of many significant events for the nation. Therefore, it is natural that the public attention will be focussed more on the Monsoon Session this year. As the Monsoon Session of Parliament gets underway, we salute our farmers who have been ensuring food security for the country with their hard work," he added.
