Watch this video in which Congress interim President and former full-time party chief Sonia Gandhi addresses the nation.
नागरिकता संशोधन कानून भेदभावपूर्ण है। नोटबंदी की तरह एक बार फिर एक-एक व्यक्ति को अपनी एवं अपने पूर्वजों की नागरिकता साबित करने के लिए लाइन में खड़ा होना पड़ेगा : कांग्रेस अध्यक्ष श्रीमती सोनिया गांधी #IndiaAgainstCAA pic.twitter.com/DutghemChe

Particularly see the time between 1:54 to 2:27 in this video, which is tweeted by the Congress Party itself from its official handle, which is an address to the nation by Sonia Gandhi.
In this Sonia Gandhi says: “नागरिकता संशोधन कानून भेदभावपूर्ण है। नोटबंदी की तरह एक बार फिर एक-एक व्यक्ति को अपनी एवं अपने पूर्वजों की नागरिकता साबित करने के लिए लाइन में खड़ा होना पड़ेगा”. This means: “The Citizenship Amendment Bill is discriminatory. Like during demonetization, every individual will have to stand in queue to prove his and his ancestors’ citizenship.” She also says after this that the proposed national level NRC will cause maximum damage to the weak and poor sections of the society.
Sonia Gandhi is openly spreading false rumours, and that too at a very sensitive time. When the need of the hour is to maintain calm and appeal for calm and peace in the country, she is spreading blatant inflammatory and defamatory lies. A person of the level of Sonia Gandhi, who is the President of the largest Opposition party, was, according to many accounts, the Super Prime Minister of India for 10 years from 2004-2014, and the Chairperson of NAC and the UPA, is doing blatant violation of law!
CAA is simply a one-time amnesty for minorities of Pakistan, Bangladesh & Afghanistan already in India on or before 31 Dec 2014. It is not applicable even to Hindus and other non-Muslim minorities of these countries who came to India on or after 1 January 2015. No one, NOT A SINGLE Indian citizen, has to ‘prove’ citizenship of ancestors or of himself under the CAA. Despite this, Sonia says that under CAA EVERY individual will have to stand in queue to prove his and his ancestors’ citizenship. Legal action needs to be taken against Sonia Gandhi for spreading false rumours and blatantly lying and misleading the whole country in a disgusting way.
When the proposed national-level NRC has not been introduced at all, its draft too is not yet made, Sonia already claims that the national level NRC will cause maximum damage to the weak and poor sections of the society. This is further scaremongering and baseless claims by Sonia Gandhi.
Of course, all this has been totally ignored by the mainstream media. Imagine if any big BJP leader, say L K Advani, had made an incorrect claim on such a major issue during the UPA era. Or, even in the present Narendra Modi rule. A large section of the mainstream media would have crucified him or her.
Here, the whole media has let Sonia Gandhi go scot-free since a large section of it is an interested party in the conflict, wanting to spread false rumours to somehow defame the Modi Government and paint it as anti-Muslim, wanting violence and protests so that the government is on the defensive, rather than a neutral reporter of facts.
