Rahul, Priyanka instigated riots by supporting the anti-CAA campaign: Amit Shah
NEW DELHI: Minister of the Interior of the Union Amit Shah on Sunday he said Congress leaders Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra instigated riots by supporting the momentum of the Law on Amendment against Citizenship.
Congressional leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra instigated riots by tricking people about the Citizenship Amendment Act, Shah said as he headed to a booth at Karyakarta Sammelan in New Delhi.
The Law grants Indian citizenship to Hindu, Christian, Sikh, Buddhist and country refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, who entered India on December 31, 2014 or earlier.
The opposition Congress has criticized the amended law over and over again, considering it discriminatory. Although Rahul called it an attack on the poor, his sister Priyanka has described the new law as unconstitutional.
Meanwhile, the Union minister, Shah, also attacked the prime minister Arvind Kejriwal for not doing enough for the development of the capital.
They (AAP) promised that they will install 15 lakh television CCTV cameras throughout the capital. So far, they have not fulfilled their promise. They also promised to make teachers and contract employees permanent. They have not completed this task either. And whatever development we want to bring to Delhi, Kejriwal is becoming an obstruction in that too. The people of Delhi now know them correctly, he said.
I urge the people of Delhi to seek report of the work performed by the Arvind Kejriwal government while being in power for the past five years, the Union Minister said in his concluding remark.
