Amidst the distress in the country over the protest against Citizenship Amendment Act, Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah to take back CAA, before it ruins the identity of 'secular India'. After the protest march against the Citizenship Act, held by students of Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), ended in violence, the Delhi police December 15, detained the protesters outside the varsity gate. Reportedly, the police claimed that detainees were those who had allegedly indulged in arson and vandalism during the protest. Taking to Twitter, Digvijaya Singh posted a series of Tweets expressing his displeasure over the situation in the country and further appealed people to come together and fight against this.

Wake up Indians otherwise it would be too late. Indians irrespective of their Caste Creed or Religion have to stand together to fight this Ugly Virus of Communal Hatred.— digvijaya singh (@digvijaya_28) December 16, 2019
Furthermore, Singh took an apparent jibe at PM Modi and Amit Shah and alluded that the world is being community divided by the 'Modi Shah' government. He also questioned Amit Shah over the police's action against the students.
Very unfortunate a Nation which went through the Trauma of Partition and because of the sane Leadership of Nehru Patel Azad Ambedkar became the largest successful Democracy in the World is being once again being thrown into Extreme Communal Divide by Modi Shah Govt. Sad.— digvijaya singh (@digvijaya_28) December 16, 2019
