Senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar on Saturday accused the Congress of carrying false propaganda against the Citizenship Amendment Act. Addressing a seminar here, the RSS leader said those opposing the legislation were driven by “vested interests”.

“The Congress is spreading false propaganda against the CAA. The opposition parties raising hue and cry over the CAA should realise that Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis, Buddhists and members of other religions staying in Muslim countries are facing hardships,”said Kumar.

“This amendment will make it easier for them to come to India and get citizenship,” added Kumar, who is the national executive member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
