Newly appointed Leader of the House in the Rajya Sabha Piyush Goyal met former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, senior Congress leader Anand Sharma and NCP leader Sharad Pawar on Friday in an attempt to reach out to the opposition parties ahead of the monsoon session of Parliament.

Mr. Goyal was promoted after the leader of the House and Cabinet Minister Thaawarchand Gehlot was made the Governor of Karnataka last week.

Rajya Sabha Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu will also be chairing a meeting of the floor leaders in the Upper House on Saturday. Over 40 leaders have so far confirmed their participation at Saturday’s meeting.

The monsoon session that begins from Monday will have 19 sittings and will conclude on August 13.
