Citizenship Amendment Bill an assault on Indian Constitution: Anand Sharma

Copy URL

Congress leader Anand Sharma on Wednesday attacked the BJP, saying that the Citizenship Amendment Bill is an "assault" on the foundations of the Constitution and fails the morality test while asserting that it was wrong to blame his party for the Partition. "The Bill that you have brought is an assault on the very foundation of the Indian constitution. It is an assault on the Republic of India. It hurts the soul of India. It is against our Constitution and democracy. It fails the morality test. It is divisive and discriminatory," Sharma said in the Rajya Sabha while participating in the CAB debate.
