‘Was Nehru communal?’: PM Modi cites partition to attack Congress over CAA
Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed Congress over Citizenship Amendment Act during his vote of thanks in Lok Sabha on Wednesday. PM Modi qouted from ‘Nehru-Liaqat pact’ during his address. He also quoted from a letter written by then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru to the then Chief Minister of Assam Gopinath Bordoloi before the Nehru – Liaqat Pact to protect minorities in either countries was inked. “This is for those who accuse us of Hindu-Muslim. Nehru said in this letter, ‘You must make a difference between Hindu refugees and Muslim immigrants and the country must take responsibility of the refugees,” PM Modi said. “I want to ask the Congress. Was Pandit Nehru communal? Did he want a Hindu Rashtra?” PM Modi said.
