Rahul Gandhi Slams, Shiv Sena Supports CAB
The former Congress President Rahul Gandhi slammed the Union government over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and said it will “destroy the foundation” of our nation. His criticism came after Congress’s new ally Shiv Sena supported the Bill in Lok Sabha.
“The CAB is an attack on the Indian constitution. Anyone who supports it is attacking and attempting to destroy the foundation of our nation,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
The bill will be tabled by the Home Minister in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday. The bill aims to grant citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and other neighboring countries, who are facing persecution based on their religion.
Shiv Sena’s support to the CAB, came as a surprise as its mouthpiece ‘SAMNA’ criticized the government for introducing this Bill and said it could lead to “invisible partition” in India. Shiv Sena MP and former Union Minister Arvind Sawant said his party supported the bill “in the interest of the nation”, and will further support it in Rajya Sabha. He further added that the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) of the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress coalition is only applicable to Maharashtra.0 Replies to “Rahul Gandhi Slams, Shiv Sena Supports CAB”
