New Delhi, Jan 27: Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu on Monday rebuffed foreign criticism of India over the recently-enacted Citizenship (Amendment) Act and asserted that there was no scope for outside interference in India's internal matters.

Expressing concern over the trend of foreign bodies interfering in matters that are completely within the purview of the Indian Parliament and the Indian Government, Naidu said such efforts were totally uncalled for and unwarranted and expressed hope that they would refrain from making such statements in future. He was speaking after releasing the book ‘TRG-An Enigma’ in the national capital here.

Rebuffing any such attempts, Naidu firmly said, "As a mature republic and democratic polity, India is capable of addressing the concerns of its citizens and needs no advice or guidance in such matters from others."

Lauding Tilak Raj Gupta’s distinguished contribution to education in India for over five long decades, the Vice- President said his humane management approach, along with his love and affection for students, staff and parents made him an outstanding educator. (UNI)
