Other members of the delegation are Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, AK Antony, Mallikarjun Kharge, KC Venugopal, Ghulam Nabi Azad, and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.

Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra’s son, Ashish Mishra, has now been arrested for allegedly running over protesting farmers in the Uttar Pradesh district on October 3. Eight people, including four farmers, were killed in the incident.
