“The move by Supreme Court to hold dialogues is very necessary, all solutions can come out of holding talks. I wish that a solution comes out soon,” he said.

As he took part in the anti-CAA, NRC, and NPR protests being held at Jamia gate number seven, the Congress leader said, “I come here regularly, it has now been more than two months but the government is yet to respond to this protest.”
