Chidambaram attacks CAA critics


The senior Congress leader, Mr. P Chidambaram, on Monday harshly criticised the Union Law Minister, Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad, saying 'mocking' the Shaheen Bagh protest, which 'represents the essence of Mahatma Gandhi', amounts to 'mocking Ahimsa and Satyagraha'.

He also criticised the Central government and said that the 'real tukde tukde gang' is the ruling party which is determined to divide the country on religious lines. Earlier, Mr Prasad had said that the ongoing protest at Shaheen Bagh is offering a platform to the 'tukde tukde gang" under the garb of opposition to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

The BJP leader had also alleged that the protest was emerging as 'a textbook case of a few hundred people trying to suppress the silent majority.'
