“We will keep raising farmers issues,” the Congress President said after meeting party MPs during which the party finalized the issues it wanted to raise during the week in the House.

Replying to a question how was Rahul Gandhi's speech in Lok Sabha was today after nearly two-month leave, she said “I did not hear the full speech of Rahul as I was busy meeting party leaders and farmers at my residence. But I was told by people it was good.”
