In separate tweets written in Hindi, the filmmaker expressed: “I want to see the ‘entire political science’ degree of the PM who is enforcing the CAA on us. First prove that Modi is literate. Then we’ll talk. #f**kCAA”
“Today CAA has been enforced. Tell Modi to first show his papers, his degree in ‘entire political science’ as well as his father’s and family’s birth certificate to the entire nation. Then ask for our papers. #f**kCAA”.
In a tweet calling the government “dumb” and comparing CAA to demonetisation, the filmmaker shared: “This government will do dialogue if they know how to talk. They can not face a single question that’s not been vetted , they don’t have a plan , they haven’t put out a system. This is a dumb government. There CAA is like demonitisation. No plan. No vision. Just bullying. #f**kCAA”.
Actress Swara Bhasker also protested against the enforcement of CAA. Sharing the gazette notification issued by the Union home ministry that says the Citizenship Amendment Act has been bought into force from January 10, 2020, the actress called it a “Black Day for India”.
