PM Narendra Modi said that his political rivals are unable to challenge him in elections and therefore they have resorted to dividing the country through rumours.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused his rivals of stoking fears among people and misleading Muslims over the amended citizenship law. Addressing a rally at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, the Prime Minister said that his government’s schemes have never done any discrimination on the basis of religion.
“The amended citizenship law has nothing to do with Indian citizens,” he told the crowd.
“Citizenship law and NRC have nothing to do with Indian Muslims,” Modi added.
He said that a lie is being spread that this government had brought the law to snatch people’s rights and dared rivals to find anything discriminatory in his work.
“I dare rivals to find anything discriminatory in my work. We have never asked anyone if he goes to temple or mosque when it comes to implementing our schemes,” he said.
