The legislative board, in particular, is a subsection of the CWC, consisting of 9-10 leaders who also serve as the CWC's executive arm and support the Congress president on frequent and important topics. The G23 has been requesting the reinstatement of the parliamentary board since PV Narasimha Rao became India's Prime Minister in 1991.

Rahul Gandhi stated that there is an attempt made in the country to end conversations. "No one is being allowed to speak. Members are not allowed to speak in Parliament, Mics are turned off. Members are thrown out of the house. Even the judiciary is being brought under pressure. Anyone can understand this today. Many people in the country are not able to understand why the media, and opposition are not being allowed to speak to anyone in the country, but it is important to understand that if no one will speak, the country will have to face its dire consequences," he said.
