New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday pointed at the importance of the monsoon session and urged all parties to work in the interest of the nation.

He also hoped the "growing stronger together" spirit of GST will bring enthusiasm to Parliament proceedings and that political parties will engage in high standard of debate and provide value addition during the Monsoon session.

Terming the start of the session as very significant, Modi noted that this session gets an opportunity to elect a new president and a vice-president for the country, which will also complete seven decades of its Independence on August 15, reported PTI.

"Today the Monsoon session begins. Like the monsoon brings hope, this session also brings same spirit of hope. After the summer, the rains fill the soil with pleasant smell. The same way, due to the good rains of the GST, the whole session will be full of enthusiasm.

"I believe, all political parties, all MPs, will take significant decisions in national interest, will engage with high standard of debate and will try to provide value addition in all issues, value addition in all system," he said.

The prime minister said the passage of GST showed the good that can be achieved when all parties come together and work for the nation. "The GST spirit is about growing stronger together. I hope the same GST spirit prevails in the session," he said.
