CAA, an attack on India's Constitution: Cong

CAA, an attack on India's Constitution: Cong

New Delhi, Jan 19 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have become living symbols of 'sectarianism, bigotry and fanaticism,' using the instrument of State to attack the country's ethos and its Constitution, Congress Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said here on Sunday.

'PM Modi and BJP need to understand that Constitution is not a 'Jumla,' to be discarded at will. Constitution is our biggest 'Dharma' – of 'raaj', 'neeti' & 'karma'.

'The inherently divisive Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) is an attack on India's Constitution, it's poor, the Scheduled Castes, the Scheduled Tribes and the minorities,' Mr Surjewala said.

Mr Modi and Mr Shah are using the CAA as a manipulative smoke screen, to 'divide and rule,' in order to hide their unpardonable failing of India's economy, insurmountable unemployment and shocking suicides of the youth as a result thereof, ever increasing inflation including food inflation and prices of petrol – diesel, uncontrolled agrarian crisis with paralysis of governance being absolute and total, he added.

He also said that the time has come to expose BJP.

'To lie and to mislead is 'Raaj Dharma' for PM Modi and BJP. Time has come to expose the conspiracy of 'lies and deceit' of the rulers, against the people of India,' he said, while posing some questions before the ruling dispensation.
