Congress challenges Prime Minister Modi to fire Sarbananda Sonowal for criticizing the CAA

NEW DELHI: Congress challenged the Prime Minister on Thursday Narendra Modi to dismiss his own chief minister for openly opposing the Citizens Amendment Act and declaring him anti-national for doing so.

The main spokesman for Congress used a tweet from the prime minister Sarbananda Sonowal to challenge the prime minister.

Mr. Prime Minister, stop fooling India! His own CM openly opposes CAA. Will you now declare it anti-national? I challenge him to fire him before criticizing the opposition, he said on Twitter.

Surjewala also tagged a news report on the Prime Minister criticizing Congress for opposing CAA and also Sonowal's tweet opposing CAA.

As a son of Assam, I will never settle foreigners in my state. This Sarbananda Sonowal will never allow this ..., the Assam Chief Minister said in a tweet.
