Mumbai: Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah “intruders” and “migrants” in Delhi. The Congress leader also said PM Modi and Amit Shah are migrants since they have their homes in Gujarat but they are now living in Delhi. Congress veteran Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Sunday mounted a verbal attack.
“They themselves are migrants,” Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Congress leader in Lok Sabha, said.
“India is for everyone and it is not any individual’s personal property. Everybody has equal rights to it. Amit Shah, Narendra Modi, it is you who are infiltrators. Your home is in Gujarat and you came to Delhi, you yourself are migrants,” he said.
It’s not the first time, he frequently opposed the government and proposed against exercise to filter out ‘illegal immigrants’ in the country.
