PM Modi Like ‘God’ For Migrants: Shivraj Singh Chouhan On Citizenship Act

Bookmark

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is like “god” for migrants, who face religious persecution in Pakistan, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, hailing the government for passing the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019.

“Modi has come as god for migrants whose lives were not safe, who lived in an environment of instability and who used to say that they will die but will not return to Pakistan. They have got a new lease of life," Chouhan, who is also national vice president of the Bharatiya Janata Party, said at a press conference in Jaipur.

Accusing the Congress of spreading confusion among people over the CAA, he said Congress President Sonia Gandhi should have spoken during the debate in Parliament before the passage of the bill, instead of putting out a televised video message about the issue.

She should have spoken during the debate in Parliament, he added.

Chouhan also questioned whether the Congress president and Rahul Gandhi had ever heard of the plight of migrants who live in India.
