Monsoon Session Of Parliament Day 2 Highlights: United Opposition Attacks Government

Monsoon Session Of Parliament: Today, opposition is expected to question government on a range of issues

After a solemn first day of the Monsoon Session this year, that saw early adjournment as respect to the dead members of Parliament, the second day is expected to see discussion on a range of issues. The opposition parties have said they'll raise issues like cow vigilantism, unrest in Jammu and Kashmir, and the India-China standoff in Dokalam. Top Congress leaders had called a meeting yesterday to discuss a strategy. 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.
 

Here are the live updates from the second day of the Monsoon session of Parliament:
