The leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha said that earlier "Pakistan would figure in discussions on Kashmir, but now China is mentioned without fail".

"We have also asked the ruling party to keep the doors of talks open in the matter of Kashmir, if not it will lead to political suffocation. Also condition of farmers and gau rakshak incidents, China".

However, the opposition parties have made it clear that they plan to target the government over the China issue during the session.
