Responsibility to run parliament has to be shared by all, said prime minister Narendra Modi on Monday at meeting of political parties convened on the eve of the monsoon session.  The all-party meet was called by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu. Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan is holding a separate and customary meeting later today.

The remarks of the prime minister are significant as the session is going to stormy with the opposition gearing to corner the government over various issues like Lalit Modi episode involving Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje.

"Parliament has a major significance and it should be utilized to discuss all issues. Government is ready to discuss all issues, " Modi said.

"We should move forward on land bill," PM Modi added.

BJP leader and skill development minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy said, "our PM has said that we are ready to discuss all the issues being talked about inside the Parliament."

The BJP has hinted that it will counter the opposition onslaught aggressively, while the Congress has said that it will continue to insist for resignation of scam-tainted leaders. BJP has accused the Congress of politicsing the Vyapam scam and said that this case is under the purview of the supreme court.

The party has, meanwhile, decided to support its leaders who are embroiled in Vyapam scam and Lalit Modi row. On Sunday, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Rajasthan CM  Vasundhara Raje met senior party leaders for a plain talk.

The BJP had held a crisis management meeting in the national capital over the controversies. The meeting was held at BJP chief Amit Shah's residence was attended by Union Ministers Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj, Smriti Irani, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Venkaiah Naidu, MA Naqvi and Piyush Goyal.

The prime minister is going to make these issues clear at today’s meeting of all NDA constituents ahead of the monsoon session. The session will be from July 21 to August 3.
