Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet the heads of all parties today to discuss the “one nation, one election” issue and other important matters.

In order to build esprit de corps, Modi has invited presidents of all those parties who have an MP either in Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha for a meeting today, said Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi.

The meeting has been called to discuss “one nation, one election” issue, celebrations of 75 years of India’s Independence in 2022 and 150 years of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary this year.

It will be followed by a dinner meeting with all MPs of both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on June 20 to freely interact and exchange views with the government, Joshi said, adding that these two novel initiatives would go a long way in building team spirit among all parliamentarians.

The first session of the newly-constituted 17th Lok Sabha will be held from June 17 to July 26.
