Kangujam also stood near the parliament premises in June this year to draw PM Modi’s attention towards Climate change. She stood with a placard that read, "Dear Mr Modi and MPs, Pass the climate change law and save the future." Speaking to ANI she said, "I urge him and all MPs to act on climate change now and save our future. The sea levels are increasing and the Earth is becoming hotter. They should act now.
