Panna: BJP leader Uma Bharti on Thursday took “Jinnah” jibe at Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi while accusing the Opposition party of peddling rumours over the Citizenship Amendment Act.
Speaking at an event in Panna, she said the newly amended Citizenship law will not affect Indian citizens.
“Nobody will have any problem due to CAA. It will not have any effect on Indian citizens’ rights. But some evil-minded people are peddling rumours.
India was partitioned due to rumours. Tell me who got benefit from partition… People like Jinnah emerged,” the BJP leader said.
“Now, Jinnah is not there but Rahul Jinnah and Priyanka Jinnah are there who are disturbing environment and instilling fear among Muslims on CAA,” she said.
Attacking Congress president Sonia Gandhi, the BJP leader said: “Did anyone of us say that Sonia Gandhi’s father was a soldier in Mussolini’s army in Italy? Since she (Sonia Gandhi) is our daughter-in-law and married in our country, we respect her from the bottom of our hearts. When we did not ask you (about your citizenship) why Muslims in India will be asked (about citizenship)?”
