Terming the start of the session today 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 15 August.

"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.
