Mumbai: Reacting to Union Home Minister Amit Shah challenge to opposition leaders like Rahul Gandhi and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and Akhilesh Yadav for CAA debate, AIMIM chief Assaduddin Owaisi said “Why debate with them? Debate with me.”
“You should debate with me. I am here. Why debate with them? The debate should be with a bearded man. I can debate with them on CAA, NPR and NRC,” ANI quoted Owaisi saying.
Addressing a gathering in Karimnagar, the Lok Sabha MP said that he is ready for a debate on the Citizenship Amendment Act, the National Population Register (NPR) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Earlier, Union Home Minister Amit Shah had said that that the Opposition is spreading rumours about the CAA.
“I have come to you for a Jan Jagaran Abhiyan in Lucknow. Our government is hardly 8 months old but we are conducting this campaign to dispell the falsities being spread by the opposition against CAA. I challenge Rahul Gandhi, Mamata Banerjee and Akhilesh Yadav to engage in a debate on CAA,” he said.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Kapil Sibal had also challenged to Amit Shah for a debate over newly enacted Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
