"Some anti-social elements have made cow protection a medium for spreading anarchy".

He alleged that some political parties were portraying cow protection as a communal issue to gain political mileage, which is detrimental to the country's secular fibre.

According to him, "These affect the image of the country".

"PM Modi has asked states to take strict action against those violating law in the name of cow protection". "Cow is treated as a mother and it is an emotive issue".

It is also expected that the Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) will discuss the name of its Vice-Presidential nominee during their Parliamentary party executive meeting in the evening.

"They (cow vigilantes) must be vigorously opposed and action taken to restore faith of all Indians in our Constitution", he said. This time China will form an important part of the discussion.

A total of 18 Bills have been listed for passage in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha in the upcoming Monsoon session of Parliament, a research body, PRS Legislative Research said on Saturday.

He said, the political leaders need to convince the people that every leader is not tainted and running after money. The meeting was seen as an attempt to pacify Opposition leaders ahead of the Parliament session.

To counter the opposition's onslaught, the government is also gearing up.

"Gau raksha ke naam par jo hinsa kar rahe hain, aise logon par kathor se kathor karyawaahi karenge (We will take strict action against those who kill people in the name of cow protection)", Union minister Ananth Kumar told reporters after the conclusion of the all-party meeting. It lasted till past 1 pm.

He also aired his concern over the flood situation in the eastern and north-eastern states of the country. He also observed that the differences with China over Kashmir had become a new focal point.

BJP leaders have said they would take on the opposition over these issues claiming that the government's track record has been better than the UPA in terms of economy and agriculture growth.

The Prime Minister came when the meeting was on and addressed the assembled leaders for five-seven minutes, said a participant. Modi said: "GST shows the good that can be achieved when all parties come together and work for the nation".
