“We look forward to what Rahul Gandhi has to say. He has visited Manipur and in the meantime, he has met with the cross sections of Indian society. He knows the state of the economy and the ground situation in Manipur. So, he has a very valuable perspective which we all look forward to hear,” Gogoi said.

Gandhi made his last speech in the Lok Sabha on February 7, 2023, when he had participated in the debate on the President’s speech.

Meanwhile, the parliamentary meeting of the BJP took place earlier in the day with PM Modi and national party president JP Nadda in attendance.

The meeting was held to chalk out a strategy ahead of the discussion on the no confidence motion scheduled to take place later on Tuesday.
