Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal fired his latest salvo against the Modi regime’s pet twin projects of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC). He was speaking at the NDTV townhall addressing a gathering of over 800 people.

“I don’t understand this law,” he said before proceeding to ask the people gathered how many of them had birth certificates, not just their own, but also of their parents. When just about 15 people raised their hands, he wondered aloud if they could become stateless. Then hauling over coals, the BJP government for its CAA blunder, he asked, “You have so much compassion for Hindus from Pakistan, but do you have any answers for Indian Hindus who might not have adequate proof of citizenship?”

Kejriwal went on to highlight how the economic downturn was affecting the common man saying, “Onions cost Rs 150/- per kg. Our youth are unemployed. But the government doesn’t seem to be concerned! Perhaps because they don’t step out and go shopping for onions.”
