Congress believes in one nation, you don't, says Kapil Sibal

Congress believes in one nation, you don't. Rise above politics. Two-nation theory was perpetrated by Savarkar. You are destroying the future of this country. Historic Bill since you are about to change history…this bill gives legal colour to the 2-nation theory. You want to change our history, that’s why you say it is a historical Bill. I request the Home Minister to rise beyond politics. You are destroying the future of this country, says Kapil Sibal

“Two nation theory was perpetrated by Savarkar and even Dr. BR Ambedkar agrees to it. We in Congress believe in one nation; I want Home Minister to withdraw the two nation statement.”

Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday said the opposition could get the required numbers against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill as the parties that supported the BJP in the Lok Sabha might vote against the proposed legislation, considering the nationwide protests against it.
