Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hoped for a GST breakthrough and called for a constructive debate seeking Opposition's support in passing several pending bills as Parliament convened for the second leg of the Budget Session.

Meanwhile, TMC protests could be seen in front of Gandhi statue at Parliament complex regarding attack of Indians in USA ahead of the second leg of the Budget Session.

There will be a detailed discussion on the Budget and I am sure the level of debate and discussion will be of good quality, PM Modi said.

I am also confident of a GST breakthrough in this session, he added.

The Congress-led Opposition is prepared to corner the Narendra Modi government on a wide range of issues including the attack on Indians in the US and the increased ISIS activities in the country as Parliament reconvenes for the second leg of the Budget Session starting from on Thursday.

Congress leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge had said earlier the his party will raise the issues of attack on Indians in the US and the anti-terror operation of Lucknow, in which a youth was killed, as well as the bomb blast in a train near Bhopal.

"On Thursday, these two issues will be raised. We will decide on other issues to be raised in rest of the session later," Kharge said.
