You need to do something like this,

comments =  issue.fields.comment.comments

for comment in comments:
    print("Text: ", comment.body)

I used the above script. However, I am getting following Attribute Error: 'PropertyHolder' object has no attribute 'comment'

@AnnapurnaI have already replied for this in your other question.

In external environment, you only have two possibilities, Polling Search API, or Webhooks.

You have two ways to do this,

  1. Using Jira Python (python wrapper for calling Jira API's)
    1. Reference -
    2. Comments Example -
  2. Using rest API's provided by Jira
    1. You will need to use 'requests' module from python (or any other) to simply consume Rest API provided by Jira
    2. API Reference -
    3. Get comment based on issue -
