Sharing the news on X, Sanhgvi posted pictures of the refugees. His post read, "Where there is gold on every branch" bird nests That India is my country. Citizens of the Indian community who shifted to Ahmedabad district several years ago due to some reason were today given "Citizenship Cards" of India. We all Indians are one, and our unity is our strength.

He said, "It is expected that all of you will be determined to participate in the development journey of the country," adding that both central and state governments are committed to bringing all those who have obtained Indian citizenship to the society's mainstream.
