Ahead of the session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted the role of an opposition in the democracy and said the opposition need not bother about their numbers and urged them to speak actively and participate in the House proceedings.

On the eve of the first session, PM Modi had chaired an all-party meeting and had invited heads of all parties to a meeting on June 19 to discuss "the one nation, one election" issue. PM Modi has been pushing to revive the concept of simultaneous polls, citing costs and the time spent on a continuous cycle of polls. But it remains to be seen if other parties are receptive to the idea.
