New Delhi: Actor Farhan Akhtar was one of the few Bollywood actors to speak up against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, promising to join the protests on 19 December. But even before he could protest, his tweet caused a kerfuffle over among other things, an ‘inaccurate map’.
You also need to know that you ' ve committed an Offence u/s 121 of Indian Penal Code & it is not unintentional. @MumbaiPolice & @NIA_India are you listening.Please think of the Nation that is giving you everything in your Life.

The BJP is currently facing severe backlash for a range of issues, from the economy, NRC to the Citizenship Act. But at least its national information & technology in-charge Amit Malviya’s social media game is on point.

We appreciate Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s enthusiasm for foreign affairs, but we wonder what “official” delegation could he have been part of.
As a part of an official delegation, I today met with the PM of the Republic of Korea, His Excellency, Lee Nak-yon and other officials, in Seoul. We discussed a wide range of issues, including the current political & economic situation in our respective countries. pic.twitter.com/0ILEg5j20Z

While the country is divided on certain bills being amended, looks like Congress national spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill has amendment plans of his own.
On a lighter note, I personally support @CitiznMukherjee Ji proposal to increase Lok Sabha strength to 1000 may be then many young politicians like myself will get a chance to contest 🤔😀

After his much publicised interview with Times Now’s Navika Kumar, Union Home Minister Amit Shah spoke with Aaj Tak. But historian Ramachandra Guha wonders if Shah will ever choose to do interviews with those reporters who are critical of the Modi government…
Can the honourable Home Minister also give an interview to Ravish Kumar please? https://t.co/k0SgrgfqHR

Does actress Renuka Shahane want to be a dam?
Do you mean "damn"? Dams are built over rivers, to harness electricity. You don't mean I'm a dam, right? Even if I wanted to be, I couldn't. They are non living things. Damn! Now may I correct your sentence? "You are just a damn actress" Yes I am! And I'm damn good! https://t.co/pJ3LSgUc04

Come on, a home minister can be good for two things also, Mr Kashyap.
Kyon? itne khatarnaak hain wo? Home minister hamari safety ke liye nahin hota? Patloon geeli karne ke liye hota hai ? https://t.co/h9mchhinZD

Thanks for the warning, God!
Trust Subramanian Swamy to not mince his words…
The anchor who interviewed Amit Shah on India Today, seems to be a retard. He asked Amitji what he has to say about my demand for giving SL Tamils Indian citizenship in CAB. In RS debate I said the exact opposite. So too on many TV bytes. Such is the low quality of India Today
