Raising it during Zero Hour, Prem Singh Chandumajra (SAD) said that earlier it used to be heard that students are beaten up abroad, but Sikhs lack identity even within the country.

“Kashmir is already on fire... through such actions do they want to put the entire country on flames,” remarked Chandumajra.

Chandrakant Khaire (Shiv Sena) took up the issue of suspension of Amarnath Yatra and said that people who have already started for the pilgrimage should be allowed to visit the holy shrine
