Meanwhile, a bill to withdraw the three controversial farm laws was cleared by the Union Cabinet today. When asked about the matter, All India Congress Committee (AICC) Parliamentary Strategy Group incharge K C Venugopal said, "Better late than never.

"We are not bothered about all these change-overs. If somebody is taking people from our party, it doesn't pinch us at all. If somebody is thinking that they can destroy the Congress one day, it will never happen. Many people have tried such things in the past but failed miserably," Venugopal said.
