New Delhi :
BJP working president JP Nadda on Friday accused the Congress party of spreading "lies" on the Citizenship Amendment Act or CAA and dared Rahul Gandhi of speaking 10 sentences on the controversial law to prove if he has actually read it. Speaking at a pro-CAA programme in Delhi, Nadda said it was "unfortunate" for the country that some people "exhibit their wisdom" without understanding the issue so as to mislead the masses.
"The Congress is opposing the CAA. I dare Rahul Gandhi to speak 10 sentences on the law. He should tell us in two sentences what is his problem with the CAA... He is leading such a big party and has to decide himself how he has to do it, but he should not mislead the country," the BJP working president said.

The amendments in the citizenship law are meant to give citizenship to members of minority communities who fled Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan due to religious persecution and took refuge in India, he said.
Likes of Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi had advocated giving citizenship to these persecuted minorities but the Congress does not have any leader now who could understand the issue, Nadda said.
For Congress, Vote Bank Comes Before Country: Nadda
Since coming to power for a second term, the Modi government has in six months resolved issues which had been pending for 70 years, he asserted, adding that opposition parties were left without any issue and had seized on the CAA to mislead the country.
"For the Congress and the Left, their vote bank comes before the country. For Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the country comes first and votes later," he said.
