Karnataka: Addressing a protest meeting against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) 2019, National Register of Citizens (NRC) and National Population Register (NPR), Richa Singh heavily criticized Central Govt.
She said that the Government has launched an attack on the Constitution of India by passing CAA 2019.
Hum kagaz nahi dekhenge
Slamming government over NPR and NRC, she reiterated the famous slogan, “Hum kagaz nahi dekhenge”. She further said that it is not about the documents rather the government is raising questions over the identity of Indians.
