Rajnath Singh accuses Opposition of spreading falsehood on Citizenship Amendment Act

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh accused the Opposition parties of spreading falsehood on the Citizenship Amendment Act passed by the Parliament. Addressing the pro-CAA rally in Mangaluru today in Karnataka, he said, the Act does not snatch away the citizenship of any Indians.

Saying that the government has not made any discrimination in giving citizenship, he added that the Opposition must not forget their Rajdharma. The Defence Minister pointed out that the Government is fulfilling its promises made in the manifesto and extending all the benefits equally among all its citizens.

He also said that no discussion is going on regarding NRC and accused Congress of creating fear among the minorities though, in the year 2000, it was Congress Government that had proposed NRC. Union Minister Sadananda Gowda and BJP Karnataka President Naleen Kumar Kateel among others were present on this occasion.
