At an all-party meeting a day before the Monsoon Session, he also cautioned against giving political or communal colour to the issue.

Modi invoked Gandhi, saying, "He would have shown us what a true gau rakshak is".

Monsoon session began with new MPs taking oath and was adjourned by 11:30 after paying tribute to former MPs and victims of terror attacks.

The Prime Minister also underscored the belief of many Hindus that cow is like mother, but said that this should not let people take law in their own hands and every state government should act against violation of the law, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told reporters after the meeting. Elected members of both houses of Parliament and assemblies in states, including the National Capital Region of Delhi and the Union Territory of Puducherry, are eligible to vote. "But committing crimes in the name of cow protection out of personal animosities can not be tolerated".

"We have also asked the ruling party to keep the doors of talks open in the matter of Kashmir, if not it will lead to political suffocation".

CPI leader D Raja said the opposition "will seek answers from the government on what they are doing to check rising incidents of cow vigilantism and lynchings in the country that pose grave danger to the social harmony of the country and the idea of India".

Mr. Modi also brought up the issue of political corruption, days after the family of RJD chief Lalu Prasad came under the scanner of central agencies.

The prime minister's first-ever visit to Israel is also likely to figure for discussion in the coming session.
