Mangaluru, Jan 17, 2020: MLC and former minister C M Ibrahim has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah of creating confusion in the minds of the public through their contradicting statements on CAA and NRC.
Speaking to reporters at the Congress office here on January 17, Friday, he said the Citizenship Amendment Act has been implemented and NRC issue is brought up just to divert public attention from other pressing issues confronting the nation.
The government is raking up sensitive issues just to cover up its follies, he said and also referred to the declining trend in GDP rates.
On the protests in some major universities including Jamia Milia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University against the CAA, Ibrahim said the government should hear the appeals of the student community.
MLA UT Khader, MLC Ivan D’Souza, Corporator Naveen D’Souza and other party leaders were present.
