“On the issue of rising intolerance and communal polarisation, I gave a notice that has been accepted by the Rajya Sabha chairperson. It is a one-line resolution,” he said.

Yechury said: “The government has said they are prepared for a resolution which everybody accepts. If they accept it, then we have no issues. It depends on the attitude of the government….”

“We will also raise the issues of price rise, high prices of pulses, Swachh Bharat cess, oil prices, decrease in industrial production, agricultural issues and farmers’ suicide during the winter session of parliament. We’ve also proposed for a new law for social justice in the country,” the leftist leader said.
