An 18-day monsoon session of the Parliament started with unprecedented precautions against the coronavirus, including staggered sittings of both houses and social distancing between MPs. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his traditional comments before the Parliament session, delivered a strong message on the China dispute at the border. “We hope the Parliament and all members will unitedly send the message that the nation stands with our soldiers,” PM Modi said. A record plunge in the economy, Chinese aggression at the border and the Covid-19 crisis are likely to be discussed, besides the listed agenda of 18 bills.
