Reiterating that they would continue to raise issue of human rights in India with its leadership, Indian American lawmakers, however, said lecturing New Delhi on this issue is unlikely to work.

"India was colonised for over 100 years. So, when we're having a conversation about human rights, and you're having a conversation with Jai Shankar or someone else, you have to understand that just coming in from a perspective of lecturing India. When they say that we've had colonial powers lecture us for hundreds of years is not going to be productive," Congressman Ro Khanna said.
