In a veiled attack, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Wednesday accused the Central government of protecting those allegedly fanning violence in the capital in the name of protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act, saying, "Internally you protect the accused that breeds vivad!".
In a tweet he said, "Vivad se aur vivad in politics. The politics of vivad polarises communities…It breeds communal riots. It destroys neighbourhoods. And when others criticise you say : Internal matter. But, Internally you protect the accused. That breeds vivad!"
Vivad se Vishwas in tax
Vivad se aur vivad in politics
The politics of vivad polarises communities
It breeds communal riots
It destroys neighbourhoods
And when others criticise you say : Internal matter
Internally you protect the accused
That breeds vivad !
