Congress leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury also sought to discuss The Indian Express investigation report on a Shenzen-based technology company with links to the Chinese government monitoring over 10,000 Indian individuals and organisations in its global  database of “foreign targets”, but Speaker Om Birla said the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) would meet on Tuesday to fix a time for discussing “sensitive issues”.
