“Political, social, and diplomatic issues exist. We need to talk about the border situation. We won’t be sitting down for a Modi chalisa. We wanted to address our concerns in every session, but there was never enough time. We are hopeful that the government will accept us during this session. We will choose 5-7 topics and insist that they come up regardless of the rules,” added Ramesh.
