Citizenship Amendment Act: Government Shutting Down People’s Voices, Says Sonia Gandhi

Bookmark

Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday accused the Narendra Modi government of "shutting down” people's voices and bringing legislations which are not acceptable to them.

After leading a delegation of opposition leaders to President Ram Nath Kovind to protest the police action against Jamia Millia Islamia students and also against the Citizenship Amendment Act, Gandhi told reporters that the situation was "very serious".

Joined by leaders of various parties, she said they were very anguished at the manner in which police dealt with peaceful protesters exercising their democratic rights, and added that police personnel entered women's hostels in Jamia Millia Islamia and "mercilessly" beat up students.
