The Prime Minister's statement on citizens' list, which has been hugely criticised by the opposition, was questioned strongly by the opposition.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi today over his claim that there are no detention centres in India and the suggestion that a nationwide rollout of National Register of Citizens is not happening.

"The Prime Minister of the RSS lies to Mother India," Rahul Gandhi tweeted in Hindi, along with an edited clip of PM Modi's speech at Delhi's Ramlila Maidan on Sunday and a media report on a purported detention centre in Assam.

The Congress MP also added the hashtag #JhootJhootJhoot (Lies, Lies, Lies) in the same style in which Modi screamed out jhooth jhooth jhooth in his Delhi rally.

The Prime Minister's statement on citizens' list, which has been hugely criticised by the opposition, was questioned strongly by the opposition.

PM Modi had accused the Congress and "urban Naxals" of spreading rumours about the issue. "The Congress and its allies - some urban Naxals - are spreading rumors that all Muslims will be sent to detention centers... Neither is anybody sending the country's Muslims to detention centres nor are there any detention centres in India..." PM Modi had said at a rally at Ramlila Maidan on Sunday.

PMs lie is exposed as the ground reality is that BJP Government has constructed  a huge detention centre in Matia village of  Assam.

The construction is seventy percent complete and the Government has sanctioned more than 45 crores for this construction.

"I want to tell the 130 crore citizens of India that since my government has come to power, since 2014, there has been no discussion on NRC anywhere. Only after the Supreme Court's order, this exercise was done for Assam,"PM said.

Home Minister took a U-Turn on his own remarks about NRC and said there has not been any discussion on implementing pan-India citizens' list.

There have been violent protests in several parts of the country against the amended Citizenship Act, the first-ever law to make religion a criteria for citizenship. Rahul Gandhi has once again exposed PMs lie.
