The Congress on Thursday dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to dismiss his own chief minister for openly opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act and to declare him an “anti-national” for doing so. Congress’ chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala used a tweet of Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to challenge the Prime Minister.
“Mr Prime Minister, Stop fooling India! Your own CM is openly opposing CAA. Will you now declare him ‘anti national’? I challenge you to dismiss him before criticising the opposition,” he said on Twitter.
लीजिए, मोदी -शाह जी का सीएम भी कथित तौर पर देशद्रोही बनकर संसद व CAA का विरोध कर रहा है ! बर्खास्त क्यों नहीं कर दिया, जनाब?
विपक्ष पर हमला बोलने से पहले अपने गिरेबाँ में तो झंकिए!

Surjewala also tagged a news report about the Prime Minister criticising the Congress for opposing CAA and also Sonowal’s tweet opposing the CAA.
“As a son of Assam, I will never settle foreigners in my state. This Sarbananda Sonowal will never allow this…,” the Assam Chief Minister said in a tweet.
