Manickam Tagore, a three-time Congress MP from Tamil Nadu’s Virudhunagar, is one of the fierce opposition voices in the Parliament. In the 18th session of the Lok Sabha, Tagore raised the issue of the restricted media access to the parliament.  

In a conversation with Newslaundry, the Congress leader spoke about the changes in parliamentary proceedings, INDIA bloc’s strategy for the next five years, Rahul Gandhi’s stance on media, and the NEET controversy.  

He also elaborately spoke about the restrictions to press freedom under the Modi government, its significance, and why he has written to the speaker, demanding the restoration of parliamentary access to journalists.
