Asked whether this was an initiative to build sampark with the people of her constituency, the Congress MP from Silchar told The Assam Tribune, �Around 11 students from various tribal villages across Cachar district were chosen for the Silchar to Sansad exposure tour of New Delhi for three days.
During the trip, the tribal students got a feel of the ongoing sessions of the Indian Parliament and also interacted with AICC president Rahul Gandhi. The initiative will definitely give the students from Cachar district better exposure about India�s political affairs.�
