Bengaluru: The war of words between Karnataka Congress and BJP leaders on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens escalated with leaders of both parties stooping to a new low
It began when former minister and MLA UT Khader warned of violence if the central government failed to reconsider its decision on CAA and NRC. Khader allegedly stated that the state would burn if the Centre did not withdraw both legislations.
Reacting sharply to Khader’s statement, state Tourism Minister CT Ravi said that there was no question of granting Indian citizenship to the Pakistani relatives of Khader.
“Congress leaders are famous for setting a fire. Khader must keep in mind what happened after the train was set on fire in Godhra in the year 2002,” he said.
Another BJP leader, MLA MP Renukacharya said that he would not allow Khader to enter the state assembly.
